Thank you for dancing with us!  We are grateful for each and every one of you.  Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!


Tap: An Interview with Teacher Corey

Q: Tell me about tap, the music, and the physical and mental benefits.

Corey: Tap dancing is an amazingly fun form of dance that benefits not only your physical health, but your mental health and memory development as well. It's a great cardio workout that also builds strength in your legs and feet, and helps with coordination. As you progress, training becomes more difficult and calls on your cognitive abilities to remember steps, combinations, and full dances. Tapping also helps to develop musicality, allowing you to understand rhythm, tempo and the mood of the music. One of my favorite benefits of tap dancing is how it brings students together, teaching patience and understanding. There's nothing better than hearing a room full of tap dancers come together to sound like one giant tap shoe! 

Q: What do you personally like about teaching and/or dancing tap?

Corey: I love to teach tap because it's a form of dance that anyone can begin at any age. Kids love to hear the sound of their feet shuffling just as much as adults, there's an instant connection to the floor and the music that you find the first time you tie on a pair of shoes. I personally love to tap because it's noisy, it's creative, it's powerful, it's impressive and it has a rich and beautiful history. 

Q: What is your favorite thing about Dance 1's tap program? 

Corey: The best part about Dance 1's tap program is that it's growing! Dancers of all ages and skill levels can come to our studio and find a home, dance to great music, and have a blast!


Dance 1 offers tap for all ages and levels.  Check out our offerings for kids and adults and seniors

Get Your Tickets


Choreography: It is our goal that your dancers are learning technique every week and not spending entire classes learning a dance.  However, remembering a dance from week to week and adding on is an important skill to acquire.  So, for many of the classes, the teachers set aside no more than 10 minutes of class time teaching the number. 
Videos: For our leveled classes, parents will be invited in at the end of class to record choreography.  For our Toddler and Combo classes, we have videotaped the teacher performing the dance so that you may review it with your child.  Search  “Dance1RedondoBeach”  on YouTube.
Absentee Policy: Please be aware that there should be NO UNEXCUSED ABSENCES during the month of October and November leading up to the show.  The dancer's participation in class during this period is vital.  Please come into the studio to discuss any extenuating circumstances that may cause missed classes.
Volunteers Needed:  Parents! We need many volunteers to help us get the venue ready for the show and to help wrangle dancers.  Please sign up on the bulletin boards located in the lounge areas. Parents will be asked to attend a short orientation the day of the show. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Please read emails or check the bulletin board for other important show information.  You can also find more on our website.
