Tap Dance is music and music is a language.

This 3-week tap dance training is aimed at ambitious amateurs, professional performers and dance teachers who want to deepen and professionalize their skills and knowledge in tap dance, jazz and music. 
The main focus of this program is about tap dance being a percussive musical instrument. For a period of 3 weeks we dive deep into the musical world of tap dance by exploring the possibilities of sound, touch, rhythm and tonality.
