PRICING POLICIES

 

Tap dancing is one of the most popular and stylish dance forms of all time. It’s a fun way to exercise and is terrific for developing coordination, rhythm and concentration. From its beginning in the early 1900s, tap has evolved from a basic form of communication to the tap technique we know today. Today’s tap vocabulary has developed from vaudeville, soft shoe, clogging and jazz tap style.

All students are asked to refrain from wearing jewellery or nail polish in class. Students will be asked to remove jewellery while in class and may be asked to remove nail polish before continuing class. The RWB School will not be held responsible for any lost jewellery items taken off in class.

The Importance of Taking More Than One Class:

Students who wish to intensify their training should take more than one class (where available) in their chosen style. Students taking more than one class per week, including one of each of the different dance styles, will enjoy crossover benefits. The posture, strength and body awareness developed in Ballet will enhance the development of Jazz technique. The musicality and body coordination developed in Tap will reinforce the work in Jazz discipline, and the flexibility developed in Jazz will assist in Ballet. All dance study will help Musical Theatre, and Musical Theatre will enable the dancer to find a voice for movement. Lyrical and Hip Hop will further develop the dancer’s style and versatility.
