Level Descriptions

Whatever level you are considering please read the level descriptions and carefully select the appropriate group. We want the teachers, fellow students and YOU to have the best time possible and get the most out of the classes. NOTE!! Some levels have two separate tracks named by color. The level in these two tracks is exactly the same!

Beginner (Level 1)
No previous tap experience needed.
Tap shoes are recommended, but it will also work with hard soled shoes.

Beginner Intermediate (Level 2)
Comfortable with simple shuffles and flaps combinations.

Intermediate (Level 3)
Solid vocabulary of steps and can execute them in various tempos.

Intermediate Advanced (Level 4)
Have been actively training for several years and can quickly learn new material and techniques. Your technique and basics should be at the level where you can use different rhythmical variations and steps with ease.

Advanced (Level 5)
At this level, self-criticism may be your strongest asset. The best advice we can give you is to not rush to get to this level. If you with good conscience can admit that you without a problem have surpassed the above level descriptions and need that little extra something to reach total perfection, this is the level for you.

Professional (Level 6)
The professional track will be set at a very high level. We have had issues in the past with there being very little difference between the professional and the advanced group, so we are taking steps to insure that the professional classes are appropriate for dancers with the highest level of experience and competence. The teachers will be instructed to maintain this high level, rather than adjusting to less experienced dancers. Our main concerns here are that those more advanced dancers may otherwise not receive the training we promise, as well as a lack of training for those struggling too much with the material and concepts taught.

Changing levels
We do offer the possibility to change level/track through the first day of the Main Schedule. Changes will only be made where groups are not already full. If there is a switch to or from Beginner level your payment will be adjusted accordingly.
