later in the day. We have Latin,
Swing, World Rhythms, Slides & Tricks, and more!

In the afternoon there will be:

After a Totally Tap one-day intensive, students will not only have new
skills but a much deeper appreciation of what makes tap
A TOTALLY TAP WEEKEND
Each Saturday, every teacher teaches a different "style" of
tap! We have Latin, Blues, Swing, Acapella, Contemporary,
Euro-Fusion and more! The students will learn not just
steps but what makes that particular style unique. They will
gain a deeper appreciation of what makes this art form so special! SUNDAY
is TEACHER'S CHOICE! Maybe
some company work or even a slides
TAP JAM WITH LIVE MUSIC:
have a live trio and we show the students how to behave
in an improv
circle (the way Tap has been handed down from generation to
generation), what to look for, what
for, how to speak to the
musicians and how to tap into their own
creative resources and take their
space in the room without feeling timid or shy as they GO FOR
IT and improvise on their own!
Some call this a "cutting
contest": Entrants put
$20 into the pot and their name in a hat. We pull the names 2 at a
time and they battle it out in front
of our faculty, who choose a winner!
We go all the way down to the "last one standing", and the WINNER TAKES
ALL THE $$$ COLLECTED!
The students will learn a famous routine
from the movies! Maybe a Nicholas
Brothers routine or a Bill Bojangles
Robinson dance. Over the 2 days, we watch the dance then get up and learn
it from the top! Even get an insight into their minds and what
made them so special! NOT TO BE MISSED!
We have 2 LEVELS for
you to choose from: Intermediate and Advanced.
Then, we use CLASS CARDS, so you
are not stuck in one room. If you
try an intermediate class and decide you want to try a more advanced
class, no problem! Just finish out the class, and next hour
you can jump into the advanced room or vice-versa! We make the weekend stress
free and user friendly!
Many prizes and scholarships are given
away at each event! Win
