Jazz & Tap

Jazz and Tap dance classes are popular with students of all ages. Both forms are infused with syncopated rhythms and encourage improvisation. As students progress through the various levels, they build greater dexterity and coordination. Their sense of rhythm becomes more finely honed, and they discover that their strength and speed can increase with each hour of practice.
