My New Tap Dance Commercial

I’m really focused on optimizing my online tap lesson website at www.eTapDance.com right now. Recently, I set up a page that makes scheduling the private Skype tap lessons easier than ever. No more blog posts full of scheduling links! (Yay…that took forever to set up.)

I’ve also had created a new intro/demo video that I believe will be much more effective than the last one. You can either watch this new video on the home page of www.eTapDance.com or just scroll down. If you’re active on YouTube and enjoyed this video, please take a moment to give it a thumbs up or share it with others on FB, etc.

I really appreciate it!

Mon, Feb 18, 2013

0 Comments

This is the online tap lesson schedule for the week beginning Monday, February 25th.

Note that there will be no online lessons this week (the week of the 18th) as I’ll be away performing in Atlanta.

To sign up, click the link next to the time and type of lesson that you wish to attend. Both group & private lessons are available. To schedule a private lesson just email me at Taps@TapDanceMan.com so we can find a day & time that works.

Scroll to the bottom of this post for answers to frequently asked questions.

After you click the link & complete the transaction I will add your name to the class and will call you on Skype when it’s time for class.

Note: Include your Skype username in the “notes to seller” box when paying.

I’m continuing to teach steps I’ve set to “The Sound of Sunshine” by Michael Franti & Spearheads. Here is a sample of what I’ve covered in the Level 2 class.

 

Level 1 Group Lessons – If you are already comfortable with basic tap steps, this is the level for you. This is also a good place to start if you haven’t danced in many years. Here we’ll experiment with putting steps together in novel ways. Lastly, if you’re normally an intermediate level student but have had little exposure to rhythm tap, you might want to start out here.

Monday, February 25th @ 7:30pm EST

Wednesday, February 27th @ 10:00am EST
Wednesday, February 27th @ 7:30pm EST

Level 2 Group Lessons – If you are normally comfortable in intermediate classes or above, you’ll probably get the most out of this level. Here I assume that you have mastered all of the basics so we can just focus on making music with our feet!

Monday, February 25th @ 10:00am EST
Monday, February 25th @ 11:00am EST
Monday, February 25th @ 8:30pm EST

Spaces Available: 5 In each group lesson.

Levels offered: Level 1, Level 2 & private lessons (by request only).

How does it work?

I teach these lessons live using Skype. Each level is being offered 6 times next week. To participate in a group lesson you need Skype version 5.0 or above. (Group lessons cannot be done on tablet devices). For a private lesson, any version of Skype will do.

How do I use Skype?

Include your Skype username as a comment on the transaction at Paypal. Without this, I will be unable to invite you into the class. My Skype name is TerrenceTaps. If you don’t have a Skype account, don’t worry it’s super easy to get one. Sign up for a FREE account here and download the software. Please note that Skype video calls are FREE so you do not need to purchase minutes or credits.

If you have any other questions, please email me at taps@tapdanceman.com Note that if you are unable to attend at your chosen time you can attend at another time assuming space is available (no refunds).
