Tap 2-6

Tap is the natural partner to Ballet with an emphasis on 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 long.

*Prima offers an Adult Tap class; please see Fall-Spring Dance Schedule for day and time, or call Prima at 605-348-8125.
