ABOUT THE ADULT RESIDENCIES:

There are four Residencies on three different levels. You can select one or two Residencies (morning and/or afternoon) depending on how intensive a training program you want. Students study intensively with a choreographer for 4 days, learning new or classic works of tap repertory. The Residencies culminate with a fun and informal performance by all the Tap City Residency groups at Tap Future, the All-Student Showcase on Friday, July 12 at Symphony Space, 2537 Broadway at 95th Street..

Levels for Adult Program/Master Classes (listed most challenging to easiest):

INT/ADV: Fast moving challenging classes for intermediate/advanced to professional tap dancers.

INT: Challenging concepts and choreography for Intermediate level dancers.

SLOW INT: Slower paced classes that focus on intermediate choreography and concepts. In Slow Intermediate level, material will be broken down at an easier pace than in an Intermediate level class. Recommended for students who are already very comfortable with tap basics, time steps, paddle & roll, and are ready to move on to more challenging choreography and concepts.

MIX: Mixed level classes for advanced beginner, intermediate, advanced & professional dancers. Students will work at their own level. Material taught may allow students to work more deeply on moderately paced or challenging concepts.

ADV BEG: Advanced Beginner choreography and concepts broken down and taught at a moderate pace. Recommended for students who are comfortable with flaps, shuffles, time steps, paddle & roll. Excellent choice for dancers with just a few years’ experience or older dancers who want to learn at a more relaxed pace.
