By far the very best tap program offered in the area. The Joan Harris Centre’s tap program offers everything from the full foot stomp and low to the floor foot work of the “hoofer” to the light and airy flair of the “tapper”. The program features a strong discipline in both the correct techniques of the various forms of tap and their proper terminology, allowing the centre’s students to confidently take their education with them to any audition across the country.
Sean Harris, the director of the tap program at the studio had been the director of the tap program at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre for over twenty years teaching accredited courses to both beginner and advanced students. He is in great demand as guest instructors at various events. and alumni of our program are now teaching tap at schools in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Alexandra Virginia, Atlantic City, and New York City.
A dancer studying tap at the Centre will be introduced to everything from Broadway style production numbers, “Swing“ tap (flash steps), “Funk” style hoofing, Irish Step Dancing, song and dance routines and precision accapella numbers. Easily one of the most exciting disciplines of dance and certainly the loudest, tap students can always expect a fun and exhilarating class.
