OUTREACH

The Outreach Program provides children and adults in the general public access to tap resources, opportunities to take classes, periodic observations of open company rehearsals and involvement in other tap experiences.  Participants are able to engage in these activities without any professional aspirations or commitments.

About the Outreach Program Classes

 

WHERE

All classes are held at our home BPA Broadway Performing Arts, 357 Broad Street, Bloomfield, NJ (behind the CVS Parking Lot) (unless specified at a different location with a partnering organization or venue for a special event)

WHEN

Outreach classes are typically the SECOND AND FOURTH Sunday of each month.  However, always check the date since some months have 5 weeks.

TYPE OF CLASSES

All Classes are DROP-IN (unless registration indicated) and open to all ages and abilities.  (children should be at least 8 years of age to enjoy the experience)

 

While restructuring  our program to include more level classes, we are currently offering 3 Classes each scheduled Sunday.  The Teaching Artist may vary.  This provides the student  with an opportunity to experience diversity in teaching methodology and style.
