Where: Mount Pearl School of Dance, 75 Barbour Drive
Admission: $10 ($5 for DanceNL members)
DanceNL is proud to partner with the Association for the Arts in Mount Pearl to present an NL Moves workshop: Introduction to American Tap with instructor Tanya Lasby
Participants in this workshop will develop a greater understanding of meter through rhythmic movements and basic tap skills like heel drops, toes, scuffs, digs, brushes, shuffles, flaps, stamps, and stomps. They will learn how to make the “simple” steps more interesting and how to find their own “voice”. Dancers should be 12 or older with a bit of tap experience, and should wear tap shoes and comfortable and breathable clothing suitable for dance.
Tanya Lasby started dancing at age 4. She graduated from Sheridan College’s Musical Theatre Performance Program in 2005 and was asked to join the Toronto based tap company Turn On The Tap headed by Paula Skimin. Since moving to Newfoundland in 2009, Tanya has been appearing in musicals, including Chicago, Mary Poppins, and Evita, She is currently a teacher at Steffen Dance.
