Tap

Tap dance is both visually and audibly stimulating. The East Dance Studios approach to this form is to teach the rhythms and steps of tap dance while enriching the students' coordination and balance abilites in an energetic and exciting atmosphere. Tap students take a rhythmic journey through classical, theatrical and present-day styles of music and tap techniques.

Tap Dress Code: A leotard, tights, and tap shoes make up the "Tap Base." Please be sure to check tap shoes before entering class for loose screws to ensure safety. Students may wear optional dance pants, dance shorts, or sweaters over their tap base. Teachers will guide students on proper dance attire per age and level. 

 

 

 

 

Fun & Educational Dress Code FYI's:
Dance studios require students to wear a leotard and tights. This dress code helps ensure that a teacher will be able to see a dancer’s alignment and positioning. The teacher needs to be able to see a dancer's body (baggy clothing masks that) for safety and proper training.  Additionally, for Ballet, pink or light-colored tights will make the lines of the legs more visible utilizing the students' training.
Dress codes  also foster discipline and help with overall focus and energy. By "dressing the part," dancers feel like dancers. Dress codes can also create unity among the dancers and go a long way in minimizing distractions, and help give classes a unified look.
