Tap Classes require the same color leotard and tights as your ballet class (if not enrolled in ballet a solid color leotard is acceptable) and black tap shoes. Tap shoe elastics are strongly recommended. Black jazz pants (hemmed to the appropriate length) or shorts are optional.
Tap I (6-8 yrs old) is a 30-minute class that meets once a week for ages 6 and up. Basic Tap Technique is taught as well as sound recognition. The faculty recommends Ballet I immediately before or after to assist in the connection between ballet and tap.
Tap II (9-12 yrs old) is a 45-minute class that meets once a week for ages 9 and up. Builds upon basic Tap Technique, sound recognition, and the ability to tap in unison are the main focuses. The faculty recommends Ballet II immediately before or after to assist in the connection between ballet and tap.
