I took tap classes 1h a week for the last 5 years. I'm not from USA and where I live tap dancing classes are very limited. I've been to a 1 week workshop recently and it made me realize I want to practise more than that! And the best solution would be to do it by myself at home. And knowing me (I'm such a bad self-taught woman), the best would be to have a program of video lessons with a real progression, not random youtube videos I found. I'm ready to pay for them.
To all the teachers on here, how much do you charge for privates? I have only really taught at studios that had scaling rates (such as $18/hr with an additional $2 per student over 3 students, etc.) Or flat rates ($30/hr no matter how many students).
Studio rental is $20/hr.
How much do you charge for adult private lessons for either 30 or 60 mins?
Hey tappers, I'm looking for music to use for warm ups, practicing steps, and making up short combinations. A lot of the playlists on YouTube are really poppy and childish (Megan Trainor, Katy Perry, etc) and this is totally not my jive. I'm looking for something cooler, groovier, sort of an electro-swing or jazzy hip hop (yes I know Caravan Palace, Parov Stelar, etc) that's still a fast enough bpm. Any artist/song suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
What are the most important features of your portable tap floor? Doing some professional sound recording but need to provide my own portable floor... to buy or DIY? Wood types? Sprung? Size? Any advice appreciated :)
I have this choreography in a big band piece with a couple mates of mine. All of us can split, but it requires us to be able to rise up from said splits. I've looked over youtube and i can only really find how to do splits and things along those lines, but none of us know how or can do it. So if anyone can shed some light on this, please, do so, because we're absolutely lost mates.
