  • TAP - LEVELS 2-6

    Tap is the natural partner to ballet with an emphasis in rhythm and intricate footwork.  It increases the student’s awareness of musicality and coordination.  Tap is a fast-paced exciting dance discipline that increases the student’s ability to count and hear the beat of the music.  All tap classes have a similar structure and level system to ballet and are 30 minutes – 1 hour long.  Tap levels are the same as the ballet and have similar age and dance experience requirements.

    Dress & Hair Requirements for Tap: 

    Leotard, tights or leggings and black tap shoes (no long dance pants due to the necessity of ankles being visible), hair pulled up off of face and neck.
