Hi there, my name is Chris Erk and I am a professional tap dancer/teacher/choreographer – Tap Dogs, Postmodern Jukebox, Broadway Dance Center and founding Artistic Director of the Tap Factor – www.christophererk.com and @christopherdanielerk on Instagram
I am happy to announce that I am now teaching weekly tap classes on Zoom and excited to share a couple videos to show how it looks and sounds in my virtual studio. I aim to keep a well-rounded structure to my classes, including a focus on musicality, self-expression, community, and the preservation of tap dance history. No tap shoes are needed to participate. All ages are welcome to attend.
You can join my Facebook group “Chris Erk Tap Classes” to stay up to date on dates and times for upcoming classes. Classes are 45 mins and $5 USD each. Below, I have copied in this week’s schedule. Please share with anyone you think might be interested.
I am also happy to teach group classes, private lessons, and choreography. Email me if you would like to host. You can also see examples of my all-inclusive tap dance facilitations under “Programs” and “Profiles” at www.thetapfactor.com
Thanks for your time. I hope to connect with you soon!
P.S. I am interested in teaching tap dance two days a week in the Los Angeles area starting this fall 2020. My rate is $75 per hour with a four-hour daily minimum. Please keep me in mind.
– each class is 45 MINS

– As a teacher of tap dance, I recognize I am teaching an art form that is rooted in Black American history. I assume the responsibility to continue to further research and respectfully represent that fact at all times.
