Tap dancing at Ruhala is fun! Learn the fundamentals while popping out cool rhythms and sounds. We move fast and you learn the basics while doing dances that are simply fun to do. We focus on dancing steps while learning and not too many drill exercises. Tap is a uniquely American dance that can be done to all kinds of music and styles and we mix ’em up a lot to keep it creative.
We move the class as fast as the class learns so the more home practice the sooner we advance. Learn to begin slow and speed up the tempo. Learn flaps, shuffles, cramp rolls, time steps, etc. while dancing steps. Learn to improvise and make up your own rhythms. Have a blast making so much sound!
Tap II & Tap III take the basics and push for faster speeds while learning pull backs, wings and other more difficult steps. The routines get more complex and the music is more sophisticated but the class remains full of cool style and fun choreography.
