If your Broadway dreams include improving and refining your tap skills, the NYC Tap intensive is the place for you! Our program has been curated to connect the past to the present and delve into the future of this art form. Classes include tap fundamentals and historic forms, contemporary techniques, and the cutting-edge new styles.
Artistic Director Jo Matos brings more than 35 years of dance instruction and choreography experience, 12 of those with the Joffrey Ballet School. Daily classes are designed to perfect tap technique, and expand the student’s knowledge of tap repertoire. A tap improvisation class will encourage students to experiment with their own movement.
The NYC Tap intensive is designed to give the serious tap student the full picture of what tap was and has evolved into in the 21st century.
The Joffrey Ballet School has been operating in-person utilizing Covid Safety procedures since October 2020 without interruption.
The New York City Tap Intensive will be operated IN-PERSON in New York, New York this summer. In the unlikely event of a government mandate which prohibits dance instruction, all students registered for in-person programming will be offered their choice of a refund (less registration and processing fees) or transfer to another program.
