JUNIOR & INTERMEDIATE TAP PROJECT
Under the direction of Jennifer Bishop, this project will fine tune the technique of young dancers and explore the use of live music.  We will encourage the young dancers to develop their own creativity and mentor them to collaborate and create their own projects to perform.  Local and touring professionals will be accessed to give the dancers a wide range of experience with different styles and approaches. ***Dancers must apply and attend an audition to be accepted to this program.  Previous tap training is required.  Classes will be limited to a maximum of 10 dancers.
