Interested in having focused 1-on-1 support in your tap related endeavors? Lessons (in person or online) can include technique, everything you ever wanted to know about music theory and practice in tap, guidance in improvisation, finding your own style, dipping your toes into advanced music concepts such as polyrhythms, coaching/performance prep, and anything else you would like to delve into on your own tap journey.
Classes with Sandra are not about learning just another combo. She approaches her classes in a conceptual way, empowering the students to find a deeper connection with themselves and their craft, and balancing the "knowing" and the "doing" aspects of Tap. Students take home valuable ideas and tools to incorporate into their own practice routine.
Sandra's specialty topics include building an efficient technique, music theory and practice, and improvisation/overcoming mental blockages around improvisation.
"I was able to learn tap in a way that I had never learned before and don't know if I could ever get that experience with someone else. Not only was her
teaching innovative, original, inspiring, but I could tell that she had given thought every week to how she could customize each lesson to fit my ability and my specific goals. She always met me
where I was at, was willing to be flexible, but also eager to push me to explore new territory. It has been an amazing process working with Sandra and every day, her insights inspire new
uncharted directions for my own tap dancing."

"Sandra's tap lessons focus strongly on a musical and rhythmic understanding as well as raising self awareness for the way the body movement influences sound.
Her lessons helped me a lot to get a deeper musical consciousness and to grow as a tap dancer. Sandra has a unique way of creating a supportive and mindful setting in her lessons."
