Tap classes are offered for ages 5-11. Tap class focuses on musicality, rhythm, and speed of percussive footwork. Class consists of a rhythmical warm up, foot progressions across the floor, and diverse combinations. Students will work towards building flexibility of the knees and ankles, consistency, and coordination. Students will learn the importance of timing and the aesthetics of sound by creating their own “music” with their feet while maintaining stage presence.
Tap dance students perform at the WDA annual showcases, festivals, charity events and outreach programs produced by Melbourne City Ballet Theatre.
