Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts is thrilled to announce that it will be partnering with WINONArts to bring tap dance to the Levee on Tuesday evenings this fall. No matter your age Tap is a great way to exercise and challenge your mind and what could be better than doing it with a view of the Mississippi in the background! Classes will be limited and size and each student will be required to bring their own tap board to class each week. Don’t worry if you don’t have a tap board or shoes, MCA has a free tap shoe lending program and has a limited number of tap boards which can be checked out with a deposit. Please check out class descriptions below to find the one that is right for you. Class size is limited so register early!
