About the class
This class series began on Saturday, September 9th and is scheduled to run through November 18th.
Registration will remain open until October 1st for late additions. If you have any questions, please contact Molly Spencer at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Tap for kids is a fun and upbeat class that focuses on coordination, musicality and rhythm. Starting with a warm up and basic steps, class will progress to across the floor steps like basic shuffles, flaps, heel digs and more. A center combination will be taught building on the steps they’ve learned earlier and incorporate new steps like cramp rolls and shuffle off to Buffalo! Kids love tap dance for the musicality and of course the shoes!
An optional recital will be held the weekend of November 18th/19th. Time & Location TBA.
If you sign up for Ballet / Jazz Class in addition to the Tap class – you receive 15% off the Ballet / Jazz class! You will receive a code in your email that will give you the 15% off.

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.
