Tap Dance Classes
Hi - my three and a half year old boy really wants to take tap dance lessons - I can't find anything for younger than age 7 (which does, I'll admit, make sense). Any recommendations? We are on an extremely tight budget, by the way. We live in SF and don't have a car, so we need something BART accessible. Thanks. Clearly watched too much Gene Kelly!
Does anyone know if classes are still being held at The Beat? I'm interested in taking Beginning Tap (as an adult) and have called to leave several messages, but received no response. The message on the machine is old, so I'm wondering if it's even operating anymore. Does anyone else have any recommendations for adult tap classes in Oakland or Berkeley? Thanks so much!

As a busy working mom, I look forward to Gregg's class each week and having a break from kid-centered stuff, connecting with classmates who range from college-age to retirees.
One important caution is that the only tap class for true beginners is the ''Intro To Tap,'' and you would want to start at the beginning of the session. All the other classes, even the ones labeled ''Beginners,'' require some experience.
For more info, you can go to the website at www.the-beat.org or else show up on a Saturday or Sunday, when most of the tap classes are, to check it out. I should add that the Beat is home to lots of other great classes, such as Samba, ballet and more. EastBayHoofer
Does anyone know a good Tap Dance classes for kids? I search the PBN and newest one is from 2003. Thank you Maro
My 6-1/2 year old daugher (she'll be 7 in March) would LOVE to take tap dancing lessons. She does her own version of tap dancing around the house ALL the time. Any recommendations? The only one on the website is from April of 2000. We live in Oakland and I am a full time working mom, so classes in the late weekday afternoons or on the weekends are preferred. Thanks for your help. Shoshana
Okay, so I just watched ''Singing In The Rain'' with my 4 year
old, and I'm all hyped up about taking tap classes. Can anyone
recommend a great tap class for adults here in
our 6 year old would like to take tap dancing classes - we have heard that Chris Bell at Studio J is wonderful, but we can't find any listings in the phone book. Does anyone know if Studio J is still in existance? Thanks Mary
Any ideas about a tap class for an active four year old boy who wants to dance fast and loud? He has been watching "Singing in the Rain", tap dancing with great enthusiasm, and asking about a class. All the web site recs are old, non-tap, or far away (we're in N. Oakland). Montclair rec center has something but it looked very sedate and I don't think he'd do well. Any ideas out there? Thanks.
