I am a teacher of 13 years and I love what I do! Tap is a fun style of dance that combines percussive footwork and rhythmic choreography for a great workout. My tap lessons include a warm up, technical training, across the floor, choreography, and improvisation. We begin with the basics while focusing on correct technique to build a solid foundation and style. From there we continue to build skills by adding more advanced patterns, intricate footwork, challenging techniques, and choreography. From classical roots to more contemporary adaptations, tap offers exciting dance training to people of every age and skill level. Book Tap lessons if you're looking to: -Strengthen and tone your legs, core, backside, and more -Increase stamina and endurance -Improve balance -Understand how to count music and find a beat -Improve coordination -Understand musicality, tempo, and timing -Find and maintain rhythm with and without music -Improve your dancing to music -Improve self-confidence -Have fun while you exercise My lessons are personalized to suit you, including your goals, progression, and timeline, so you'll get the maximum benefit out of your lessons and enjoy yourself along the way!
