Course Description

In this 6 week course, students will be introduced to the basics of tap dance. They will explore new rhythms, develop their musicality, understand weight transference, and learn a plethora of new steps to be used in choreographies and improvisation. We will touch upon the history of tap dance and by the end of this course each student will be able to perform The Coles Stroll (a historical tap dance standard created by The Copasetics). No need to own tap shoes to take part, simply bring some hard sole shoes or trainers and a willingness to learn!
