Students of all ages literally get a kick out of turning their feet into percussion instruments in these tap classes at our Bedford, NH dance studio. The tap dance program at BYPC emphasizes performance in addition to musicality and dance, so students not only have a blast but become prepared for musical theatre pieces that require Broadway style tap dancing.
This BYPC tap and jazz combination class introduces students to the foundations of dance including ballet, tap, and jazz. Students begin with a center warm-up on the floor for stretching and to developing strong feet and ankles, and then they progress to exercises for finding balance. Students perform across the floor movements and leaps for developing smooth weight transferal and foot strength. During the second half of the class, dancers perform ankle warm-ups, practice steps and rhythms, and work both in the center of the studio and across the floor.
Ages 5-6 3:15 - 4:00
Tap Level I
This BYPC tap class follows the same format as our beginner tap class but is geared for children a little older. Students still learn basic tap steps in an easy to understand manner and focus on time, rhythm, musicality, and performance.
This advanced beginner tap class at BYPC continues building a strong tap dance foundation while adding more complex tempos that require greater precision and accuracy.
