The Dance Shoppe - MILTON

725 Main Street East

Milton, ON

July 18-22, 2022

Over the years, we have received many questions about summer training options and tap specific programs like our intensive for advanced and keen younger dancers.  In response, we've created a specialized program for dancers interested in our intensive, but don't yet meet the age or experience requirements. We've designed this program specifically as a stepping stone, offering 30 hours of tap training over 5 days with a focus on technique, history, music theory, improvisation, choreography and working with live music.

 

Read on to learn about this year's program!
