About Tap Dance Classes at our Studio

CCD’s Conservatory Training Program in Tap offers 6 different levels of classes that are designed to develop dancers’ body alignment, core support, and understanding of complex rhythm that are required for Tap dance technique. From the cultural perspective, CCD students will develop the understanding of how tap dance technique is directly inspired by African American social dances that were developed in the early 20th century. In addition, CCD emphasizes anatomically appropriate training methods, process-based learning, and professional standards.
