This energetic, semester long course will focus on learning the basics of Broadway style tap while learning a fun recital dance. This class is for students with zero to limited dance experience and is conducted at a beginner pace.

Please advise teacher in advance of any special needs or any recent injuries that will limit movement. While great caution is taken and skills will be appropriate for beginner students, accidental falls, etc. can still happen and teacher is not responsible for any injuries that occur during the course of the classes. Please do not use cardboard as dance floor as this is a hazard (it will easily slide out from under tapper's feet).
Homework OfferedHomework will be recommended and is encouraged for those who would like to improve faster, but it will not be required. It is up to each dancer as to whether or not they would like to practice and for how long. Additional resources like YouTube videos may be suggested to check out after class to view famous dancers, but it is also optional.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedDancers will constantly get live feedback from teacher during class. Class recommendations will be given at the end of the semester, if students wish to continue their tap dance studies.
Recommended clothing: -leggings or shorts and form fitting shirt or top (baggy tops or bottoms make it hard to give corrections for upper body placement and difficult to tell if their legs are bent or straight); alternatively leotard and tights are best, but not required Optional: -tap shoes and tap board (1/4 inch cut of plywood 2' x 3' or larger) *do not use cardboard as this will slide out from under dancers feet and is a hazard
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
If students need help staying on task or working the computer or app, parents may wish to monitor from the same room or within sight distance for the first few lessons. The room should be as free of distractions as possible and student should have at least a few feet to move around. Please advise teacher in advance of any special needs or any recent injuries that will limit movement. While great caution is taken and skills will be appropriate for beginner students, accidental falls, etc. can still happen and teacher is not responsible for any injuries that occur during the course of the classes. Please do not use cardboard as dance floor as this is a hazard (it will easily slide out from under tapper's feet).
