Fall Tap Dance classes held Tuesdays

Adult Tap Dance classes Tuesdays this fall are once again up and running at the Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center. Four class levels are offered each evening: remedial starting at 6:30 p.m., beginner at 7:00 p.m., intermediate at 8:00 p.m. and advanced at 9:00 p.m. The weekly group sessions will run through Dec. 18.

The JCC’s Tap classes are open to anyone age 12 and older. No prior dance experience is necessary. The cost is $5 per person each night. No RSVP is necessary and plenty of free parking is available.

The remedial and beginner classes are for newcomers and teach from the beginning. A limited number of tap shoes are available to borrow each night on a first come, first served basis. Class registration is not necessary, although tappers are asked to arrive early to sign in.

Local attorney and choreographer Barry Shulman will once again lead the classes. Shulman, who has held the Tap classes each fall and spring at the JCC for many years, teaches “New York City” style. Students do not need to commit to every class and can attend as much as they’d like.

“We’re excited to have Barry bring Tap back again this fall,” said Patrick Scott, JCC sports and fitness director. “He’s an excellent teacher and makes the classes lively and entertaining. For all levels of dancers, Barry does a great job of getting everyone moving and having fun.”

Shulman, a partner with the law firm Mackenzie Hughes LLP, has taught principal dancers on Broadway and with national tours. He keeps the cost of the Tap classes to a minimum and donates the proceeds to the JCC of Syracuse. Shulman received the JCC’s Kovod Gadol award in 2013 for his extraordinary commitment, energy and loyalty to the center.
