Students should have a firm understanding and command of traditional tap vocabulary. Theatre Tap, taught by Matt Crowle, is a fun and challenging weekly opportunity for aspiring performers and established professionals to keep their technique sharp. Every week, after a few rhythmic and articulation drills, students will learn and perform a brand new routine. This class structuring is designed to simulate a professional theatre tap call, giving students a chance to push themselves to absorb choreography quickly and perform it with a strong sense of confidence and a quality of ease. The choreographic style of class routines is hugely influenced by the MGM movie-musical canon and by such legendary performers as Fred Astaire, Ann Miller, Gene Nelson, Ray Bolger, and Eleanor Powell. The footwork is fun, the music is delightful, and the atmosphere is positive and welcoming.
Classes take place at the Porchlight Rehearsal Studio, 4200 W Diversey Ave. (Just west of Pulaski) Parking available on the street or in the adjacent lot. By Public Trans, #76 bus pulls up right in front!
*This class will not meet during the month of March. Classes resume April 10, 2017
