Starts Thursday, January 18!
The PCTP has been in existence in various ways since 2007, but the "adult education and performance" aspect of it has been going strong since 2014. That means we are in year 5! This year marks a new beginning for the adult program, as we anticipate a new set of free adult workshops, and a transition to regular weekly rehearsals from January-May with live music accompaniment. Join us every Sunday from 12:30-2, $5 weekly participation fee.
Starting January 5, our kids program expands to include twice as many classes and we are very excited about our new tradition: an annual May recital at Girard College. Sign up now!
If you want to learn tap from the very top, this series is for you. Tap is very much like learning a language. You need some vocabulary and guidelines before you can start speaking. Once you have the tools, the kinds of conversations you can have are endless. That's when the tap joy really happens! In 5 weeks, we will cover the basics of body mechanics, music and technique. All students will leave with a 1-page handout listing all the terminology and music theory concepts covered in class. All five classes for $50.
Four 5-week series for beginner/intermediate levels. WEDNESDAYS 7-8. Always with live drum accompaniment! Take 5 classes for $50 or drop in for $12.
