New Year, New Name, New Logo,
Same Great Tap Dance Studio!
This November marks our 5th Anniversary and we have decided to re-brand in order to better represent what we do. We are now Wall-2-Wall Tap Dance Center! The logo has been redesigned and we are excited to be starting another year in business.
To celebrate this achievement, we will be having an anniversary party on Saturday, November 17. We’ll start off the celebration with a performance by the HeartBeat Tap Ensemble at 2 pm. At 3 pm, Mary will teach a tap sampler class, starting with 10-15 minutes of Never-2-Late, and then progressing thru Tap 1, Tap 2, and Tap 3. It will be a great way for new students to figure out which level is the right one for them. Then at 4 pm, we will be raffling off some fantastic prizes and having our traditional cake from Honeymoon Sweets.
The raffle this year will run a little bit differently. Raffle tickets are $5 each or you can purchase 5 tickets for $20. You will be able to select which prize(s) you are interested in winning. Prizes include:
- A 4′ X 4′ practice floor from O’Mara Sprung Floors
- A pair of custom Miller and Ben tap shoes from the Jazz Tap Center
- 2 1-Day scholarships to the 2019 Big Apple Tap Fest in New York from Avi Miller and Ofer Ben (airfare and hotel not included)
- A 20 Class Flex-Pass
- A 10 Class Flex Pass
- Wall-2-Wall T-Shirt of the winner’s choice
- Wall-2-Wall Merchandise Item of the winner’s choosing (bag, DVD, water bottle, etc)
Seating for the show is limited and we recommend you reserve a seat in advance. Please email Mary or reserve your spot through our Wellness Living site: https://www.wellnessliving.com/. Due to the fact that this is a registration system and not a ticketing system, you will need to create a user profile for each person who is attending.
If you want to take the free tap class, you can register at the same website.
Raffle tickets will be available throughout the event. The winner of each prize must be present at the time of the drawing, or another ticket will be drawn.
Classes Start Next Week!
Registration is available online through our Wellness Living site: https://www.wellnessliving.com/. If you’d like to register in person or over the phone, Mary will be at the studio and available to register you Saturday Nov. 3 from 10 am – 4 pm.[table “7” not found /]

We are currently looking for people who would be interested in learning how to teach our most basic classes. The ideal candidate will be someone who attends classes regularly at the studio and is already familiar with how we do things.
