If your Broadway dreams include improving and refining your tap skills, the NYC Tap intensive is the place for you!

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.
