PANTUSO DANCE LEVELS
Experienced Dance Students
Following in line with our studio philosophy, we are excited to be switching to a new class designation system that will help students concentrate on being the best dancer possible be rather than their "level" of dance. All of our classes for students with moderate to extensive experience and skills have been given fun class names that relate to an aspect of each discipline (ex: Ballet Adagio, Tap Shuffle, Jazz Boogie etc).
Please note if you would like to register for classes other than “Steps” you must contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an assessment.
Please find your designated class on our customer portal.
Dance Students At The Beginning Of Their Dance Journey
Our new series of classes for students who are just starting out or are continuing to work on the fundamental skills is called "Steps". Each of our dance disciplines has a series of "Steps" classes along with designated age groups. All new students are able to register in any "Steps" program for their appropriate age group. Please note that it is very normal for students to be in these classes for 2 or more seasons.
If you are wanting to register for a discipline that you did not take this year please contact us to be directed towards the appropriate class or to set up an assessment.
The mainstay and inspiration for Pantuso Dance, these fun high-energy classes explore the world of rhythm, time steps, technique, and fun. Experience the joy and rewards of making music with your own feet, explore all styles of tap, and work on challenging and fun choreography for the year end performance. Be prepared for all types of music since tap dance is all about expression and feeling the rhythm. Classes are structured for the students’ own specific level so that progress can be made as a group and new levels of expertise can be achieved. Please note if class is full you can register to be placed on a waitlist.
Tap Youth Boys (By Invitation)

Expand technique and foot work in this intensive class. (Students must be enrolled in a regular Pantuso tap program in addition to this class.) Co-requisite: Tap Tech Junior and Senior must be enrolled in Tap Level appropriate to their level. Please ask Lindsay to determine whether this class is appropriate.

Notes on Tap Shoes: Shoes must be hard soled and heavy; taps should have 3 screws and be tight to start with. Do not loosen the taps. Danca, Bloch and Capezio are good brands. Patent leather with ties are fine for girls 6yrs and under, boys must be in lace up shoes.
