About this Class
In this class we will learn the basics of tap dancing as well as its history and origin. We will explore rhythmic patterns, discover new ways to make sounds with our feet, and create art that conveys our expressions and ideas! Please check your email to receive your Google Classroom code. Email Ms. M if you have lost, didn't receive, or misplaced your code: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students are required to do a self evaluation every week and turn it into Ms. M. Part of that self-evaluation is recording attendance (#showup & #listenup) and then recording whether you were fully present and danced your best (#blessup & dance). If you were absent for a reason that you can still receive credit before, YOU are responsible for seeking opportunities for make-up work. Here are some make-up resources below!
In case of absence, ALWAYS check with Ms. M for make up work FIRST. Most missed classroom work can be found on your class' page. If asked to complete the "General Make Up Work Assignment," you can find it below
