Katharine's ABW is specifically tailored to help students who are either brand new or fairly new to tap.
Students will build a solid and useful foundation that can be applied to any style of tap dance. It is taught as a course, rather than the open drop-in class format of regular BDC classes. Students can expect a user-friendly introduction to all of the basic elements of Tap technique taught in a friendly, patient, and fun environment.
This workshop is perfect for absolute beginners, and it is also wonderful for those who have some tap experience and would like an opportunity to build their confidence and develop a sound technique-base before venturing into open tap classes. No previous tap experience is required.
