AMAZING class. Tanya was spectacular. I took a Beginner/Intermediate tap class. This. Class. Was. Perfect. for my skill level. I hadn't tapped in several years but knew the basics. This class pushed me hard and in all the right ways. Free to ask questions, never belittled, but never babied, and was challenged appropriately. This was the perfect class to get the ole' gears roaring again. Class never felt dumbed down but a quality to rise to. 10/10
