Broadway-style Lessons are traditional dance classes with a focus on technique & learning combos, divided into levels. TAProbics is a fun & unique, full-body, cardio & toning workout class. All levels are welcome in the same class and no experience is necessary.Workshops are one-time drop in classes.
Yes! TAProbics classes are for all levels- no experience necessary. You just follow along, and have fun. You show up & sweat, we'll take care of the rest.
Everyone questions me on whether they are too something. We all have our too's. Some have 2 too's. Whatever your too is, come to class so you can have too much fun.
Adults of all ages & levels can take class. Kids & Teens can do Private/Semi-Private lessons or Kids/Teen classes when available. If we don't have a kids/teen class on the schedule, email us for class options.
Here's a Pop Quiz to find out:
1. What's your tap experience?
a. I've watched Fred Astaire movies
b. I fake-tapped in a show once
c. I used to tap as a kid
d. I've taken classes regularly
If you've answered A or B or D, skip to question 3
2. I used to tap as a kid, but it's been "ages", and "ages" =
a. more than 10 years ago
b. 5-10 years ago
c. 1-5 years ago
b. I learned one from a friend once OR yes, I remember those from "ages" ago.
c. ball change? doubles? or off to buffalo?
If you answered 2 or more A's, I suggest Level I (absolute beginner) 2 or more B's= Level 2 2 or more C's or D= Level 5
If you answered differently for each question, I don't know.. just call me, maybe I didn't set this quiz up very well. I'm a tap teacher- we don't give quizzes..
Do I need Tap shoes?
You can wear sneakers at first. Tap shoes are much more fun though.
Where can I get shoes?
Pre-covid we had shoe rentals available and will have them again in the future. Please bring your own shoes to class or wear sneakers.
We sometimes have new shoes available for purchase. Check our Instagram page or email us to see what's in stock or what can be ordered.
Which shoes should I get?
Get the shoes that feel the best to you- heels, flats, mary-janes- whichever you like. As lessons progress, everyone inevitably blames the shoes for their mis-steps, and I'm ok with that.
What should I wear to class?
Wear what you would to workout in. Avoid pants that are too long or with very wide bottoms so they don't hide your tap shoes.
