Skills and Areas Covered

New Vision Dance Center is a progressive dance center where adults can rediscover their passion for dancing and get fit while doing it. Our classes teach a solid understanding of the basic techniques of Tap, including shuffles, falaps, cramp rolls, and time steps. We pair these skills into unique combinations along with music for a fun choreographed workout routine that everyone can learn. Our goal is to make sure you have fun throughout each routine.

Classes

Our talented staff of instructors has dedicated their lives to dance and proudly share their passion with students of all ages. Tap dance gets its name from the distinctive sound made from the small metal plates attached to the dancer’s shoes. Classes are divided by age and skill level, and gradually progress to cover more difficult techniques. Classes focus on learning the founding skills of Tap while helping students further develop rhythm and coordination and clarify the sounds of their movements.

The Right Dance Studio for Your Child

At New Vision Dance Center we have been teaching kids in the Beaverton and Hillsboro areas to love dancing for many years. We strive to help develop smart dancers who care for themselves and the art form that they are learning.

Tap Dress Code

During Tap classes, female students should wear a leotard, tights, jazz pants, and black tap shoes; a fitted tank-style shirt is acceptable over leotards. Male students should wear a T-shirt with bike shorts or leggings and black tap shoes. Long hair should be pulled away from the face into a bun or ponytail.

The distinctive part of a Tap dancer’s uniform is the unique shoes; each part of the Tap shoe makes a different sound. To protect your shoes and our studio floors, please don’t wear your dance shoes outside the studio. Showcase performances aren’t mandatory but are encouraged and require a costume purchase with a separate costume fee.

Benefits of Tap Dance Classes

Tap lessons are an excellent form of exercise. With our adult classes, you can increase your stamina and improve flexibility, strength, and coordination. Tap burns approximately 315 calories per hour, which also makes it an excellent activity if you are looking for a fun new workout. Taking Tap can improve your balance and is a great way to strengthen your core, and it can even help improve your posture to reduce back pain.  In addition to the health benefits, our dance classes let you connect with other students in a non-competitive manner, to make friends and to learn a new skill.
