This course is focused toward the student with no previous tap dance experience. Students will learn basic steps and concepts for ease of tapping. The basic steps and rhythms will be put together into simple combinations and routines. Students must provide their own tap shoes. See the instructor at the first class meeting for details.
A prerequisite of Level 1, instructor approval or recent previous tap experience is needed to enroll in this course. Speed, memory and more intricate steps and rhythms will be emphasized. Individual showing of rhythms and steps will be integral to hearing and perfecting the taps in each class and students should be prepared for individual attention. Time steps, wings, cramp rolls and tap turns will be worked on separately and then incorporated into the routines. Students must provide their own tap shoes.
