Tap is all about timing and we like to make every class interesting and a bit of a challenge by picking up the steps quickly as possible as if in an audition situation. In this class we explore every style from the more traditional Fred Astaire routines to Harlem and musicals like 42nd Street, Billy Elliot or Tap Dogs.
