5's & 6's Tap is a fun, developmentally appropriate 60 minute class for children who are five or six years old by October 1 of the school year in which class begins.
Tap technique, a wide variety of compound steps, creating rhythms with our feet, and improvisation are presented with easy to understand terms, fun games, songs and rhymes. An important part of any class for early elementary students involves learning good dance manners...taking turns, keeping quiet (including tap shoes!) when necessary, and listening to and following directions.
This class is designed with the typical developmental abilities of five and six year olds in mind. Children must be 5 or 6 by October 1 to enroll in 5's & 6's Tap. Because the curriculum progresses incrementally from August to May and is based on the age and corresponding developmental abilities of the dancers in fall, strict adherence to the age limit is enforced.
Dancers wear a specific pinch front tank leotard*, ballet pink dance tights and pink leather ballet shoes. All hair must be secured in a bun or pony tail.
*Leotard colors: 5's - Light Pink, 6's - Eggplant
