Private Tap Dance Teacher

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

My dance lessons will be tailored to you. Let me know what your goals are and what your motivation is for taking these dance lessons, and I will do my best to help you reach those goals. I teach many styles of dance - Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Scottish Highland, and Ballroom (including International and American styles). I have worked in dance studios for several years and was able to teach a couple of beginning and intermediate social dance courses at Brigham Young University as a student instructor as well. I am passionate about all things dance and am excited to go on this journey with you.

Miri is super nice and enthusiastic! I am a super new beginner, so it was comforting to have someone so willing to teach and encourage me to become a better and more confident dancer!
Claudi
The dance lesson was very great! It was a lot of fun for me and I was able to expand my own skills. Miri is the best teacher i have had so far, very motivating and supportive.

Miri is an amazing teacher. She breaks the steps down, repeats it as often as I needed and is very patient. I can't wait for my next classes.

Online Tap Dance Teacher

I am a classically trained dancer with 20 years experience in performance. I have always been passionate about historic costumes and was introduced to historic dance while getting my degree from Ga. State University. I am currently the director of the Atlanta Historic Dance Company. I've performed, taught and choreographed for performances on stage, at historic events and in the film industry for the last 10 years.
Historic Dance can run the gamut between beginning level dances up to professional level performance. I can tailor your lesson to fit your needs. The most popular lesson at the moment is the 1920's Charleston. I can also offer lessons in popular social dances from the Renaissance up through the 1960's.

I have had the honor of knowing Kat Nagar for over 5 years. She is a most patient teacher, teaching me everything from 18th-century court dance to 1920s swing.
I highly recommend her as a resource to teach all levels.

Kat makes dancing fun and easy!! She breaks things down step by step so even a beginner can understand and get the basic move. I had fun and also got in a great workout. Learning from Kat I am building my confidence on the dance floor!!

Jessica immediately made me feel at ease - she was very clear and precise in explaining the basic steps and my confidence was restored! Her class is challenging yet a lot of fun!

"Carolyn was a tremendous teacher. I just wanted to understand the basics and she was able to provide an excellent foundation. I think that it's likely that I'm much (much) older than the usual student that's interested in tap, and Carolyn managed my own limitations with skill and good humor. Oh, and besides being a great teacher, she's an amazing tap dancer!"
