Welcome to Beginners Tap with Jill! This Tap class will include basic footwork, musicality and rhythm. We will focus on finessing a tappers technique while having a blast doing it! The class will include warm ups, across the floor exercises and combinations that blend coordination and rhythm into high-energy routines. Students will be instructed on tap terminology where needed and occasionally view age and level appropriate performance videos to assist with their learning.

Students will need to have tap shoes for this class (please do not wear them outside of the classroom). Let us know if you are having trouble sourcing or paying for them and we can try to help you find a pair!


Jill Zuiderweg-Litzenberger

I am so excited to be teaching your children this session! For those of you that don't know me, my name is Jill. I have been dancing and performing for over 30 years. The value of the qualities that dance and music infused in me as a child motivated my desire to teach Dance and Musical Theater. I started my training in Colorado and continued to pursue my training at University of the Arts Pennsylvania focusing on Dance and Musical Theater. I traveled around the world performing and studying with many companies and choreographers including Disney Cruise Line and Disney World Resorts, Cirque du Soleil, Koresh Dance Company, Royal New Zealand Ballet, Ormao Modern Company, The Movement Dance Co. as well as choreographers Mia Michaels, Stacey Tookey, Cris Judd, and Laurieann Gibson. I moved to Santa Cruz a 10 years ago to be close to the sea and far from the snow! I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to teach with a goal of instilling in my students grace, inner beauty, confidence in their creativity, and self discipline.
