Tap Dance classes for Adults

Koresh School of Dance – Class Descriptions

Koresh Dance Company

Since 1993 the Koresh School of Dance has offered open classes in dance instruction for adults. Our Center City Philadelphia studio at 2020 Chestnut Street boasts two sprung floor dance studios and large dressing rooms, with classes held seven days a week. We offer more than 35 adult classes in a wide variety of movement instruction, including tap, ballet, jazz, modern, modern jazz and hip hop. Our instructors are widely regarded as some of the best in the city.

A classical dance form characterized by grace, precision of movement and elaborate formal gestures, steps and poses. Coordination, strength, flexibility, rhythm and musicality are all emphasized. Ballet shoes required.

Typically the style of dance you see on Broadway, concerts or television. Students warm up with stretching, isolations, strengthening exercises, and "across the floor" exercises such as turns and leaps.The class ends with a combination that is usually fast-paced and danced to popular music. Jazz shoes are optional; socks or bare feet acceptable.

This style of dance reflects the style of Koresh Dance Company. Modern Jazz classes encompass components from jazz, modern and ballet techniques. No shoes required; bare feet acceptable.

Inspired by street dance styles, this class is by far our most popular. Isolations, stretching, rhythms, upper body strength and funky footwork are all emphasized. Instructors may incorporate elements from popping, breaking, locking and house dance. Each class ends with learning choreography to popular music. Clean sneakers required (please bring with you in a bag; do not wear your studio shoes on your way to class).

A type of dance in which sounds are created by clicking the metal taps on the soles of a dancer's shoes. Fundamentals include shuffles, time steps, flaps and basic rhythms. Tap shoes required.

Adult Ballet Class in South Bay/Peninsula?

2008-02-27 09:12:14 by returndancer

I'm having the hardest time finding a Ballet class - JUST ballet - NOT ballet + tap + jazz + salsa class, for ADULTS in this area. I'm sure they're out there, so where are they? I've looked everywhere I could think of - including dance stores. Lots of ballet classes for kids, of course. I danced for 14 years, and I want to take some simple classes again - nothing serious - just basic barre stuff for stretching/strength. I have no interest in embarassing myself on the stage again :) I live in Sunnyvale and work in Los Altos Hills - anywhere within this range would be great. Thanks in adv

Hi everyone. I'm moving to San Francisco in about a month, and I am looking for a dance studio, preferable competitive, that offers advanced tap classes for adults. I am 21 years old, have been dancing since age 4, and would like to continue with it after the move. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You should check out Rhythm & Motion, San Francisco Dance Center (though it's got more bunhead classes & flamenco than tap), ODC, and Mission Street Dance. Also look online at Bayareadance.com (?can't remember exact address,sorry). Also, if you live in East Bay, check out Ashkenaz, they have all sorts of classes for adults & also advertise for other studios as well. Good luck, there's tons of studios, only hard part is finding what you like!

I've taken jazz at studio 10

2005-02-05 21:32:16 by busy_student

For my dance team in high school my junior and senior year. i really liked it. i took tap, ballet and jazz at a different studio before, and i never realized how much it sucked till i got to studio 10. studio 10 is near...miller and bollinger in san jose. closer to the cupertino border rather than downtown san jose. i'm not quite sure what kind of classes they offer now, i took the class that was a jazz/technique class for my dance team, and i know they have classes for up to 18yo/high school aged people, but i'm not sure about for adults.
i know a lot of peole who've gone to dance academy in cupertino, on steven's creek, near de anza jr
