For Intermediate & Advanced Tap Students! (ages 10-18)
Chicago Tap Theatre is excited to announce its first summer Tap Intensive for students from age 10 – 18! Taught by Artistic Director, Mark Yonally this is an opportunity for students to improve their tap dance skills in three key ways: technique, learning historically-important masterpieces of tap dance, and by playing rhythm, movement and music-based games.
Each day will feature a three hour class structured to maximize the amount of new tap dance knowledge they can learn. The technique will be centered around improving speed, cleanliness of sounds and ability to do tricks, all based on the loose-ankle work Chicago Tap Theatre employs (and based on the work of Yonally’s technique mentor, Sam Weber). The second hour will be devoted to learning a classic of tap dance choreography from our shared history. Finally, students will have an hour each day to play educational tap games that will improve balance, music understanding and general tap skills followed by a ten minute Story Time to learn more about the history of the art form.
Tap Intensive Date: July 26, 27 and 28 (Wednesday – Friday)

Advanced Students: 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm (at least 5 years training required)
