      Sports & Recreation

    • Tap Dance Instruction – Take an online tap dance class and learn the basics from a pro!
      A Note From the Pro: I’ve been a dancer basically my whole life, and I’ve been teaching dance for just about half my life now. I am a member of JorsTAP Chicago, the only current all female tap dance company in the Windy City. So, I’m super excited to give you guys a little twist and a different style of dance – Tap! But, I’m a huge fan of fusing dance styles together – learn a bit about this style (or explore it a bit more if you’ve already trained in it) and then throw in whatever other styles into the mix to make it your own! YOU DON’T NEED TAP SHOES! Socks in the kitchen, Nikes on the driveway, all are perfect!

      Here’s the assignment – If you’ve never tap danced before, watch the first video. If you’ve got a bit of training, you can skip it if you want to.

      Then, you have two options:
      1) make up your own rhythm or combo using some of the basics in the first video, or if you’ve got any other tap moves in your bag, throw them in!
      -or-
      2) learn the combo from Video 2 and Video 3. There’s a more basic song choice, or there’s a trickier song choice with faster tempo and more intricate rhythm.

      Have fun! And don’t forget – Make it your own!
      Video 1 | Video 2 | Video 3

How you can help

Your gift will be used to cover any of the heightened expenses we have as we shift our operations to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. This would include expenses for our meal program, cleaning supplies and wages for staff who are being paid through the response doing other critical work, including training and connecting with our Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee families to assess their needs and ensure they are aware of resources through BGCGM and the larger Milwaukee community and delivering our programming virtually. As the response evolves, we are grateful for your trust to use this support where it is needed most to serve the community.
