Tap Dance Practice Pads

“I live in a teeny studio apartment in NYC and finding a way to practice that didn't involve scratching the floors up or annoying my neighbors seemed impossible.

I am so happy with my Tap Dance Practice Pad. I can now practice any time of day or night and I don't have to stress about getting my security deposit back.

The pad is a perfect size for my space - small enough that it fits and large enough that I can modify traveling choreography and keep it on the pad, and there's definitely enough room for rolling shuffles.

The fact that it rolls up means I can keep it next to my yoga mat in the closet or under the bed, and it's easy to set out or put away quickly.

If you live in the city and need a way to practice that doesn't involve paying $20/hour to rent a studio in midtown, definitely pick up one of these!”

- Jacqueline, New York City.


Mindfulness And Meditation Will Now Be Part Of The Curriculum In 370 Schools In England

That's the right idea.

trueactivist.com Most of the time, when children act out by kicking and screaming expletives, it is because they do not understand what they are going through, and cannot find a better way to release their feelings.

The studio is now closed for Spring break. We will be back on Monday, April 29. I hope everyone has a wonderful and restful break! 💖🛌

[04/17/19]   We will not have hip hop Friday.

[04/16/19]   Recital is coming...
