3rd Tuesday of every month

This class is specifically for our most advanced tap dancers and we are only doing the class once a month until we have enough interest to add it permanently and weekly to the schedule. At this once a month class, we will mostly review the barre work of grades 6, 7 and parts of 8 just to keep them fresh in our minds and in our feet!  We can decide before the end of the year if we'd like to create a dance for recital.
