Mrs. Ruble has written a Donors Choose grant to help replace the tap shoes in her classroom. The shoes last for years, so even our youngest students will benefit from these shoes when they reach upper elementary!
Help me give my students new tap shoes so that they have the opportunity to learn this classic American Dance style. They will also have the materials to take their costumes on the road!
My students will use these tap shoes to learn this classic American Dance Style. They will focus on tap dance for 1 Quarter each year from 3rd through 5th grade.
Tap dance is not only a fantastic dance skill, it develops the brain in a way that benefits children's reading and math abilities.When they are creating rhythms with both sides of the body, they are creating synapses that allow the brain to better comprehend what they are reading.
Students at our school also have the opportunity to take their show on the road! The traveling duffel bag will keep our shoes and costumes safe as we travel, and the large curtain will allow us to cover the mirror so our performance is stage-ready!
