We recommend that students enroll for the entire session. Regular class attendance and practice is the best way to develop your tap dance skills. Plus, enrolling for the entire session is the most economical option. There are no refunds for missed classes, but students can attend another class as a make-up for any missed classes. Make-ups must be completed by the end of the session. Session passes are available until the end of the second week of classes.

Dance classes at Wall-2-Wall Dance Center are offered by the session. New material is presented in all classes the first week of the session and then all classes progress from there. All classes at our studio are 55 minutes in length. Each tap dance class begins with a warm-up and includes technique work appropriate for the level. Some choreography may be included as well. Our class levels are defined as follows:
This is our “Introduction to Tap” class. It is for those with no experience in tap dancing. The pace of the class is slower than a Level 1 class so that students have an opportunity to become familiar with the basic technique before continuing to a Level 1 class. Most students will be ready to move into a Level 1 class after completing a session of Never-2-Late classes
TAP LEVEL 1
For those with some experience in tap dance. It is expected that students in this class will be familiar with the basic steps and combinations introduced in NEVER-2-LATE TAP. These classes still focus on the basics, but move at a slightly faster pace. This is the class where you really work on mastering all of the basic steps. Most students will spend 1-2 years in Level 1 classes before they are ready to move to Level 2.
TAP LEVEL 2
For those who have mastered the basics of the tap dance and are ready for something more challenging. This class focuses on Time Steps and traditional pieces of tap dance choreography. It takes 6 sessions to complete Level 2 before you will be ready to move to Level 3 and each session we offer 2 different “sub-levels” of Level 2. It is recommended that students take the Level 2 classes in order, beginning with LEVEL 2.1 and work their way up to LEVEL 2.6. The 6 sub-levels are:
- Level 2.1: Coles’ Stroll and Soft Shoe techniques
- Level 2.2: Waltz Clog and Military Time Steps
- Level 2.3: The Shim Sham Shimmy and various combinations
- Level 2.4: Time Steps: Shuffle Time Steps, Stomple Time Steps, Travelling Time Steps, Hoofer Time Steps and more!
- Level 2.5: The B.S. Chorus and the Copasetic Chair Dance
- Level 2.6: The Steve Condos Rudiments and Level 3 Preparation
TAP LEVEL 3
This is an intermediate level class. Level 3 classes are fast-paced. Students should have mastery of everything that is covered in the previous levels before trying this class. This class focuses heavily on technique, style, rhythm and musicality.
HEARTBEAT TAP ENSEMBLE
This is our adult tap dance performance group. Students in this class need to be a solid Level 2 or higher tapper, and have a desire to perform. In these classes, we prepare pieces of choreography for performances. In addition to class fees, there may be additional costume costs for members of this group. Students who take this class are also required to take at least 1 technique class (Level 2 or 3) each week. The HeartBeat Tap Ensemble is made up of 2 groups that meet at different times:
- THE CRIMSON HEARTBEATS: for tappers ages 16 and up. This group meets Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7 pm.
- THE GOLDEN HEARTBEATS: for tappers ages 50+. This group meets Monday and Wednesday mornings at 10 am.
