Why should kids have all the fun?
This is your chance to learn how to tap dance! Classes are aimed at total beginners but new material will be presented for returning students and dancers who want to brush up on technique. We start with exercises and basic skills and work up to short sequences that will have you dancing in no time! Tap shoes are not required; bring smooth-soled shoes (leather or suede soles) if you don’t have tap shoes yet. 5-week series; class is designed to be repeated. Class meets in the PAE building, upstairs in room 11. Entrance from the parking lot near the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. No classes on April 13 or April 20.
