Description

ADVANCED TAP (Mondays 7:30-8:30pm)

For Adults and Teens 13+

ADVANCED TAP is a fast-moving tap class designed for students with a strong foundation ready to challenge themselves far beyond the basics. Each class will include a thorough warm-up, intricate rudiments and rhythmic exercises that stress syncopation and precisely timed weight shifts. The class will incorporate rhythm tap techniques and approaches geared to maximize efficiency and clarity. Much time is spent on rhythmic variations, complex patterns and intricate combinations and choreography. Students will also have the challenge of reversing combinations from the right to left side (and vice-versa) without instructor demonstration. We will apply our solid technique to improvisation, using our known vocabulary as a toolbox for the spontaneous individual expression of rhythmic communication. Dancers will explore the language of tap by working with it as a conversational art form in guided improvisation. This class will also incorporate flash steps such as: pullbacks, pickups, grab offs and wing variations. This class will definitely keep you on our toes and give you a vigorous workout for the body, mind, ears and feet!
