Tap for Your Heart

tap dancing

Want a great way to build a strong heart and learn some new skills? Participants will learn basic tap steps and combinations commonly used in musical theater choreography just like next summer’s musical comedy extravaganza, Nice Work If You Can Get It.  This workshop is great both for beginners and for performers looking to brush up their technique.  By the end of the class all participants will be familiar with shim sham steps, time steps, flaps, shuffles, ball changes, buffaloes, maxi fords, drawbacks and fun rhythms. Some tap and character shoes available – call for sizes.

Dates:  Mondays, April 6 – May 4 (no class April 20), 2015
Times:  6:30pm to 8:00pm
Instructor:  Carole Canoma
