Tap Ballet

tap-balletTap Ballet is a perfect combination class!  The class is divided with 20 minutes of tap, and 25 minutes of ballet.  Since ballet is the basis for all dance technique, the combination of tap and ballet work hand in hand.  The technical training is taught through ballet, which in turn helps teach the proper shifting of weight and patterns in movement for tap.

Class Highlights:

  • One 45 minute class per week.
  • Class size is limited.
  • A recital performance held in May.
  • No extra recital fees or costume fees.
  • Monthly newsletters posted on website.

Dress Code:

  • Girls should be dressed in a pink leotard, pink tights, pink ballet slippers and black tap shoes.
  • NOTE: Dance Day Dress is REQUIRED (instead of leotard) at Marlowe, Primrose Sugarloaf East, Shallowford, and St. James.  It is RECOMMENDED at Johns Creek Presbyterian.  The dress is an acceptable alternative at any location, and is ideal for those younger students not yet adept at changing themselves.  Many parents buy both to have on hand.

  • Long hair should be pulled away from the face.
