   Dallas Ballet Center has many classes to offer students who are interested in tap. Under the direction of Peggy McCaslin, the tap division receives a solid technical foundation. Peggy McCaslin received the prestigious Tap Legend Award from The Dance Council of North Texas in 2013 for her commitment and excellence in tap instruction. Classes are fun and fast-paced and are offered to students ages 5+ in tap. Tap is an excellent way to develop rhythm, coordination, dexterity, and agility that carries over to other dance disciplines, academics, and athletics. Classes improve concentration and a student’s ability to grasp and execute combinations and instructions quickly. Students not only learn tap technique but also develop self confidence, stage presence, and performance skills. Tap students in younger classes also receive an introduction to musical theater skills with routines that incorporate song and dance.
