Pre-School Tap (ages 3 - 5)

This is a wonderful age for learning rhythm and hand eye coordination. Tap dancing is great for developing both of these skills. At Adonai we make class fun by utilizing props while practicing steps! This develops creativity as well as fundamental dance skills. The goal of this class is to help children develop basic tap dance skills and instill a love for dancing!


Beginner Tap (ages 6 and up)

This class is geared towards learning classical tap fundamentals. Tap combinations and tap sequences are utilized to help students get familiar with tap basics at this level. Some basic time steps are taught. ( ie. Shuffle Off The Buffalo and Shim Sham). Depending on a students ability they may be at beginner level for 1 or two years.


Intermediate Tap (ages 7 through adult)

Multiple levels and styles are taught at this level. Classical tap time steps, use of floor, and form are emphasized. Also, intermediate students are taught some Irish and stomp styles of tap combinations. Students can study at this level for years because of the variety of styles taught.
