Have you ever wanted to try Tap Dancing or took it long ago and want to pick it back up? Tap Dancing for Teens and Adults(11+ through adult) is a fun, low pressure environment that is designed for absolute beginners or those with some experience in dance or music.
It also is a great way to develop musicality, timing, balance and improves memory skills and coordination. This class will also cover basic steps, terminology and basic rhythms and steps that progress into fun and lively dance combinations.
This is a non performing class however please speak to the instructor if you are interested in performing opportunities at the end of the session.

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.
The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging.
