What's Included

Are your toes feeling blue? Let Weathervane help you tap your troubles away with this tap-dancing class! This class will focus on teaching techniques and steps to make students familiar with tap dancing for the stage. We will "shim sham" and "shuffle off to Buffalo" in this fast-paced class. Students need 1 year of previous tap-dancing experience to participate. Attire for this class: All students in this class must wear comfortable clothes that allow for movement. All students in this class must purchase tap shoes in advance of the first day of class. Tap shoes can be purchased at a dance-supply store or at select shoe retailers (such as Payless ShoeSource). INSTRUCTOR: Sarah Bailey, M.M.
