Description

In this exciting dance class, students will be introduced to the style of tap. Students will be learning the basic technique of tap. The children will also be learning a tap dance to a Christian song and will learn about how dance can be used as a way to worship. They will have the opportunity to perform the dance in JAM’s spring Variety Show. Children should wear comfortable clothes to dance class (leotards, tights, leggings, t-shirts, etc.) and will need a pair of tap shoes. The costume purchased for this class will be kept by the students once the show is over. This class is a fun and exciting introductory class to the style of tap.
