Frequently Asked Questions
What if I’ve never taken a tap class before?
No fear! This course is designed to begin your tap dance journey from the ground up, starting with the basics of getting comfortable in your shoes, and working towards intricate steps and rhythms!
What if I don’t have tap shoes?
If you’re looking to purchase a new pair of tap shoes, check out your local dancewear store, capezio.com, or blochworld.com. If you are interested in this course but aren’t sure if you can get tap shoes, no problem! You can still learn new tap dance skills in sneakers, or even socks! Just be careful of your surroundings, and make sure you aren’t dancing on a floor that’s too slippery!
Where should I tap dance?
Portable tap boards are a great way to tap dance anywhere! We are lucky enough to be partnering with Tony The Tap Floor Guy for this course. Click here for more information on how to get your own portable tap board!
