Did someone say… TAP? For teen/adults??? 

Musical Theater with TAP! (1.5 hours 12+) RL + RP

EAS instructors combine to give you the class on what it takes to have the basics of all art forms in performance. This class will focus on the sharpening of technique in tap dance, will get your vocals familiar and warmed up to musical theater songs, and will introduce to you how to pack down the memorization to manifest the character as being what brings the dance and music to life. *students are required to purchase tap shoes
