New Vision Dance CenterWhether you took lessons as a child, or you’ve always wanted to try, Tap classes for adults are one way to get some exercise and have fun. At New Vision Dance Center, we offer a variety of dance classes for adults and children as young as 18 months in a friendly environment.

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.

Student Suitability

Our dance classes are designed for the beginner to the intermediate and advanced dancer. Because Tap can be customized to all fitness levels and individuals of any age, we encourage kids, adults and even senior citizens to participate in our available classes. We choose family friendly music which is suitable for all ages, so it’s possible for children and other young family members to come and enjoy watching.

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 noncompetitive manner, to make friends and to learn a new skill.

Dress Code For Tap Classes

For our adult Tap classes, we recommend wearing athletic style clothing that you are comfortable and free to move in. Tap shoes complete the look and allow you to hear the unique sounds each step makes.
