ABBI CAVANAUGH TEACHES BROADWAY TAP
Beginning Broadway Tap:
This class will focus on mastering and building upon basic East Coast Broadway style tap technique and developing rhythm and musicality. Students will also learn a short combination each week to apply technique to choreography, to incorporate the full body into tap dancing, and to promote memorization!
