Kids' Tap Classes

Let's dance!

Join this lively class that introduces children to one of Chicago's most energetic dance traditions. In Pre-Tap, your child will begin to learn basic movements and rhythms with music. In levels 1, 2, and 3, your child will shuffle, hop, and step-ball-change to many different musical styles. Our other tap classes include unique opportunities for children to discover all the joys of tapping!

Tap classes will have the opportunity to perform in dance recitals hosted by the Old Town School throughout the year.
