Tap Exam Letters of Intent


It is that time of year that I like to get out our letters of intent for
our exam programs. Attached is the letter of intent for our Tap students 

Primary 1-Grade 9 inclusive.
I like the parents to be informed and on board when it comes to the exam  programs.  The practice for these exams should begin now! or already started ages ago!

Generally speaking, the following classes are ready for this season’s
Tap_Dance_Shoesexams.  I will post specific class lists and students who should be ready and are on track, after the Christmas break.  It is still early in the season.

Primary 1, Primary 2, Tap 1, both Tap 2 classes, Tap 4(some students may be ready), Tap 5(some students may be ready but very few.  Pick ups and wings need to be on track!), Tap 6 (a few may be ready), Tap 8 (all), Tap 9 (the decision of this exam is in the students hands as it is an “extra” grade)

Be sure to read the age requirements!
Thank you for reading through this material!

These letters and entries must be in asap.  I need to send these to Gilbert
Exam program by Jan 28.



Types of Dance

We often get questions about what the various types of dance are. To help with some of the inquiries we have prepared a guide which describes the various types of dance. You can access the document by clicking here or by contacting the studio for more information.
