This level is for you that have never taken a tap class before, but also for the dancer who wants to start again and polish your basic technique. Tap shoes are optional. If using normal dance shoes, hard soles are preferable to rubber soles.
You feel you are beyond the beginner level and are ready to take your flaps, shuffles, paddle & rolls and cramp rolls to the next level. The class material is adaptable to different levels of advanced beginner/beginner intermediate.
You should have been tap dancing for a few years and practice regularly. You know basic time steps and have a solid vocabulary of jazz. You pick up combinations fairly easily. Expect a faster teaching tempo on this level.
The tempo will be even higher than on the intermediate level. You know the standard routines by heart and have a solid technique and add your own style to your flash.
