 Tap/Jazz I - Ages 7+

These energetic and fun styles are sure to excite any dancer! Students will use special shoes for each style and learn basic to intermediate steps and combinations. Tap uses shoes with metal plates to allow the dancer to make sounds with their feet. Jazz technique is derived from ballet with basics such as plies and tendus being the foundation for more advanced skills. Class will begin with proper stretching and warm ups for each style. Students work on their memorization skills by learning short routines. This class will perform a dance in both styles for recital.
