Let's keep our bodies in motion by Tap Dancing! Tap dancing keeps our minds sharp, as we learn, memorize and review different tap dance combinations. We will dance to Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, and many other great artists. On occasion, we will incorporate hat and canes, making it a truly fun way to exercise! (Tap Dance Shoes can be purchased at Dancingly Yours in Plainville or contact Amy at Spotlight Dance Center to see if we have any gently used tap dance shoes in your size, for sale. Inexpensive tap shoes are also available at Payless and Walmart, yet a higher quality pair of tap shoes will most definitely change your tap dance experience.)
