Kindergarten-1st Grade Tap
The quickest way for a student to learn rhythm, musicality and to "hear" the music is through a Tap class. Students create sounds and rhythms while learning to be aware of their classmates so their sounds appear to come from one. Students enrolled in Tap class will learn both Traditional Tap and Rhythm Tap.
Class Key Features and Benefits:
- Technical skills in center floor and across-the-floor are introduced and drilled
- Choreography is taught and reviewed at the end of class to challenge dancer retention
- Technical difficulty is increased throughout the year as dancers master current skills
- Class Observation without disruption through Closed Circuit Television
- Class performs in both the winter and spring recitals
