“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!
– Mary Shepperd

“Jazz class was so much fun, I really learn a lot. I highly recommend this class if you are new to Jazz dance, I would definitely take this class again.”

“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

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.”
