Ballet and tap combination classes offer a prelude to formal ballet instruction at a perfect age to introduce tap dancing. Students are introduced to ballet terminology and barre work, while building flexibility of movement, dance exploration, and classroom decorum. Most dance experts agree learning tap before the age of 5 instills bad habits children under the age of 5 do not have the fine motor skills needed to successfully learn tap. The 5-6 year old dancer has the coordination to balance, understand weight transfer, and combining steps.
