 Tap dancers sometimes make a distinction between Broadway-style  “show tap” and “rhythm tap,” which is more akin to jazz and percussion... 

About Eddie Brown

Eddie Brown was a marvelous improviser, meaning he could invent taps to music as he performed.  The Saturday 1 pm. "Eddie Brown" class is so named because it was his, up to his death in 1992, when his students asked his young assistant, Howard, to keep it going.

The current, temporary studio location is mapped here. DO NOT PARK in the My Gym lot on Tyburn Street. Instead, go one driveway  further down on the same side of Tyburn Street. And then park along the long wall that is to your left as you enter that driveway.  There are LOTS of spaces there. DO NOT PARK elsewhere in that complex. You also can park in the neighborhood, following posted instructions, but at times street parking is limited. 


For inquiries about classes, please send us a message. 


We will get back to you soon!
