Level 3/4 – Tap/Jazz
At this level, offered to students ages 9-12, the jazz portion of the class gets incorporated into the tap dance and students begin to combine upper body styles with more complicated tap rhythms. Intermediate tap techniques increase the students’ speed and stamina to allow them to perform with faster and more varied musical tempos. The waltz clog, soft shoe, shim sham and rhythm time steps are some of the routines that are introduced. Students are encouraged to practice regularly outside of the class.
