Tap training at Move With Grace is an excellent way to learn musical awareness and an understanding of the creative process. The rhythmic footwork in a tap routine uses tone, shading and clarity of sound to achieve the desired song, either accompanied by other music or acapella.
Our approach is a whole learning experience aimed at not only improving dance skills but also the overall education of the student. Our method addresses all three learning styles: Kinaesthetic, Visual and Audio. The Tap program uses a variety of learning aids to teach an age-appropriate syllabus in an entertaining way. We also provide a written description of every routine to allow the student to practice outside of class time.
