Just Tap and Be Happy! Beginner I & II

Mondays, Feb. 4- Apr. 8, 2019

“That’s what I love about dance. It makes you happy, fully happy.” (Debbie Reynolds)

Grab your tap shoes and join Instructor Kathleen Smith on Mondays. You’ll learn the popular 1930s “shim-sham-shimmy” and get a little “tap-happy”.  Along with having fun, you’ll be strengthening your balance and giving yourself a good brain work-out as you learn patterns, cross your midline, shift your weight and direction, and stay with the upbeat music.
This class is so popular that we’ve divided it into two sections:

Adult Beginner Tap I
Have you always wanted to tap but missed the chance when you were younger? Have your tap shoes been buried in your closet for years? Come have some fun with Instructor Kathleen Smith as we work on basic tap steps and learn the Shim Sham Shimmy. Written notes and review videos will be provided after each one hour class.
