“Thank you so much for offering the opportunity of these Zoom tap classes. As I told Barbara I haven’t tapped for 25 years, but she has been so great and supportive of these rusty legs and toes! I’m having a blast! I don’t think I would have had the courage to try tap again if it hadn’t been for this Zoom class. But now, when dance classes open again (whenever that is!) I will find a suitable class to enjoy this activity I love again so well. I’ve signed up for the second session and am looking forward to 8 more weeks of tap!

“This class was challenging and fun. The instructor was able to accommodate many different levels of previous experience. It helped me to connect with others and preserve a bit of normalcy during this strange time.”

“Allison was a great teacher on the subject on online submissions. I learned some brand new things I didn’t previously know about, she gave great feedback on my video that gave me inside on how to improve for the next time and I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn more about this subject.”
– Colden Lamb

“What a refreshing, welcome educational opportunity for all young performers to receive professional mentorship and training in their desired field! SDMT has already led the field in setting an example of giving back to the community and reminding all that there is a greater stage than just the ones they are performing on. They now continue to lead the field by creating new avenues for young performers to receive experienced leadership.”
