Our Tap Program is based on the Al Gilbert Tap Syllabus. The Al Gilbert Graded Tap System simply makes teaching tap easy. Never has there been a system so organized and logical that has proven to effectively teach tap to young and old alike in such a fun and simple manner. There are 10 levels in all beginning with simple shuffles and flaps and progressing to more advanced wings and pullbacks. Each step is broken down in a systematic, fool-proof way making learning exact and easy. Each level builds upon steps that have been learned in previous levels. This syllabus routinely and properly trains each dancer to advance from beginning exercises to advanced combinations with ease.

Level I: 

In this and the following levels, the dancer begins more ‘serious’ training, appropriate to their physical and intellectual maturity.  The Level I dancer is an advanced beginner or graduate of our elementary program.

Level II:
