Adult Tap Master Class

An adult tap workshop to serve the returning and experienced tapper, this six-week master class will begin with a basic refresher and progress to more advanced combinations and drills. This workshop is perfect for the adult dancer who is looking to brush up on their tap, meet the challenge of some new material, and get a fun workout. The class will begin with a 30-minute warm-up on tap fundamentals including shuffle, flap, cramp roll, triple heel, and riffs – ideal for the tapper returning to class after many years. 

As fitness levels and tap experience varies, students are welcome to enroll in either the full class or just the warm-up.

In the event of inclement weather, classes will be made up starting on the Saturday following the last meeting. If more than one class is cancelled, make-ups will continue on the next available Saturday.

You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown

Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. 

The new script features two new songs, particularly funny dialogue, and new, catchy orchestrations. Whether you’re keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find “Happiness,” You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic.
