On Tap Fall Session Begins Monday September 21‏

Happy September Tappers!

The leaves around the tap house are starting to signal a new season. As they gather on the tap house steps I swoosh them off making that “tap slide” sound clearing the way to begin the fall session. I hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful summer and the current continuation of “hot”. It’s wonderful dance weather. All classes will begin in the tap house at 4145 Andrea Dr NW and may eventually move to a space downtown later in the session.

Speaking of hot don’t forget to watch the finale of So you Think You Can Dance next Monday at 8pm. Only 4 dancers remain and one is a fabulous tap dancer. Go Gabby! Here and here are two links to some of her work on the show. As Paula Abdul says, “It takes an athlete to dance and an artist to be a dancer. Gabby and All these contestants are BOTH.

Looking forward to your athleticism and artistry on the dance floor soon.

Here is the schedule. All classes have a bit of American and Irish tap.

Beginning Adult Tap: Mondays 3pm

Beginning Childrens Tap ,ages 6 and up:  4pm

*Intermediate all ages tap: 5:15pm
*(There is an opportunity  to have this class downtown salem at 7:30pm. Please let me know ASAP if that is an option for you instead of 5:15. Regardless we will meet at the tap house at 5:15 on the 21st)

Session dates: September 21 to December 1

12 classes   $180.00

Tappy Birthday to Sheri Leipzig! Sheri has broadened her dancing talents as a member of the Skylark Tappers in Portland. Kudos to her on her hard work and dedication to tap dance. It’s wonderful when she has time to come to Salem and dance with us as well!!

Looking forward to seeing you all soon. If you have any music requests please send that my way too. Thank you to Robbin Porter for all the great you-tube links. Enjoy the rest of August and start of September!!

Yours in tap,
