Class description

 “Even though I’m an actor, singer and dancer across pretty much all forms of entertainment my first love is and always will be Tap. I’ve really missed teaching and trying to pass on my knowledge and style so please come along and let’s share some time and some steps- maybe even some time steps. This master class will run through technique, rhythm exploration and improvisation. I look forward to seeing you all “
