    I recently moved to Chicagoland, and I am interested in taking courses at your studio. I studied tap dance for 16 years, but it was about 8 years ago. Lately, I put on my tap shoes very infrequently, but I am eager to start again. Do you have any reccommendations to whether I should enter an intermediate or advance level class? I appreciate any assistance you can give me.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi, I recieved your e-mail on being able to pay $50 a month as oppose to $150 up front, and now I just want to know how soon can I pay or how much time do I have to pay?

    Although I know that classes have already began, I would like to register my son for the reminder of the classes at the Harold Washington Cultural Center for 3-4 year old. I can’t register online because I don’t have a credit card but I can bring payment on Saturday when I come, please let me know if that is okay.

    I’m moving to the area shortly and I’m interested in taking (adult) tap classes from your company in the fall and indefinitely thereafter. I have taken from Bril before at the Detroit tap festival and loved him! Is there a schedule anywhere or if that changes from time to time is there a mailing list I can join? Thank you!

    Just saw you on Steve Harvey, loved it. My thing is, you’re from the westside but, your classes are outsouth or in the heart of the loop. Did u even try to bring it west? The Golden Dome or Lafollette Park, would have been very convenient. I’d love to get my granddaughter involved, she’s 8 and very energetic, she loves to dance and perform. Anyways, great job!
