Absolute Beginning Tap Dance for Adults

 

Tap dancers are literally musicians with their feet. It’s fun to watch and even more fun to do. Tap has a rich history that began over 100 years ago and is still a favorite today for adults of all ages. This tap workshop is designed for adults to learn tap dance from the very beginning. The focus is on learning single tap steps, then incorporating the steps into a series of combinations. It’s so much fun, and easy to pick up.

Fulfill a dream. Learn something new! Make music with your feet!

Tap dance is for any age, but is a perfect dance style to learn as an adult. It is a great workout, strengthening the legs and feet, while increasing mobility in the hips, knees, and ankles. It improves balance and coordination. It is also extremely beneficial to cognitive functioning. (good for the brain!)

Dress Code: Tap shoes recommended but not required to get started. Wear a shoe with a low hard heal or sneakers. Comfortable clothing.
