I have an
advanced-beginner tap dance lessons package
that consists of 12 exciting adv-beginner tap dance lessons. You've already done lesson 2 and I'm hoping you're hungry for more.
You may be wondering why we skipped to lesson 2. We did so because there is a tricky step in lesson 1 called a toe stand. Not everyone loves toe stands so I thought I would start you off with some more popular steps.
You can always skip a step if it's not to your liking. You can even reach out to me anytime for step substitutions (I recemmend heel stands as a substitute for toe stands). I'm always here to help and to answer your questions.
By the time you finish all 12 adv-beginner lessons you'll know 36 different tap moves and be able to do them all well. Your timing and rhythm will improve as will your strength, balance, coordination and stamina. You may even notice certain side effects such as:
One of the best features of my advanced-beginner tap dance lessons package
is that you'll always have access to me if you need help. Are you always missing the second sound of your shuffle? I can help you with that! Are those hops a little too much for your knees? I can give you easy alternatives.
I'm just a phone call or an email away. I've even had students schedule a zoom call to get some help (I do charge for zoom lessons but emails and phone calls are free!). I've been teaching over 30 years so I've seen and fixed just about every problem you're going to run into.
I think you're going to have so much fun tapping - and I'll be with you the entire time!
