Our Tap C Level classes are part of our Competitive Edge Core Classes:

Tap Jr1C   45 mins/week   (Age 7, invitation only)
Novice Tap will begin working on their Jr 1 tap syllabus to master their basic tap steps as well as to improve in their rhythm and musicality. The dancer will work throughout the year and will complete the basic tap steps required in the syllabus to be assessed for class placement the following year.

Tap JrC   45 mins/week   (Age 7, invitation only)
Dancers will begin to work on more advanced tap steps in the Jr. grades. Each grade builds upon the previous so it is important that the dancer has grasped the basic concepts of their grade before moving up into the next. Dancers will work towards gaining musicality, rhythm and performance quality and will be assessed twice a year for placement the following season.

Tap C     1:00-1:15 hour/week     (invitation only)
Dancers follow the Al Gilbert tap syllabus to advance their tap on a yearly basis.  Each grade builds upon the previous so it is important that the dancer has grasped the basic concepts of their grade before moving up into the next. Dancers will work towards gaining musicality, rhythm and performance quality and will be assessed twice a year for placement the following season.

Recital/Costume:     Tap C level classes perform a routine in our annual recital and will require a costume.
