We're just wild about Dottie! Here's what her students have to say about her classes:
"As a hearing-impaired person taking zoom classes is better in a significant way for me because I can hear the teacher’s instructions in a way that I cannot in the classroom. Bluetooth earbuds greatly enhance the ability to hear as compared to hearing aids." Margot Tap Dance for Yogis (Level 2)
Dottie is a must-go-to teacher for ANYONE who wants to tap.
Her beginning class is supportive, fun and she clearly explains the sounds.
The advanced class (Level 2) keeps a 'somewhat limited' tapper (me!) on my toes; that class also is really well taught. Dottie is my 4th tap teacher over the last 20 plus years and I'm so glad I found her.” Maureen M., San Francisco, CA Tap Dance for Yogis (Level 1) | Tap Dance for Yogis (Level 2)
"Dottie is a great and very patient teacher. I’ve always wanted to pick up tap classes again and here was my opportunity. She is able to observe from her garage afar and make corrections as needed. I’m really getting a good workout and having fun at the same time!”" Irene T., San Jose, CA Tap Dance for Yogis (Level 1)
