Garrett Minniti is thrilled to be back on the West Coast and is on a mission to excite the dance community with tap dance!  For the past three years Garrett has been living in New York where he teaches at STEPS on Broadway, Dance New Amsterdam, and both choreographs and dances with Sybarite Productions.  He performs as a guest regularly with dance companies GPR Entertainment, VIM Productions, Steven Williams, EraFusion, and Arch Dance Company.  He is also on faculty with NYLA Dance Competitions and Conventions where he teaches both Tap and Hip Hop. 


Garrett has danced his way across the country and internationally with tap dance sensation Caution: Men at Work Tap, Broadway’s SWING! and 42nd Street.  Direction/Choreography credits include industrial, stage and screen performances with Warner Brothers, Reed Productions, Kim Freedman Productions, and Equity Fights Aids.  Other credits include A Chorus Line (Mike), Grease (Danny), Singing in the Rain (Cosmo), The Great American Songbook starring Ed Ames and Carol Lawrence (Branson, MO), and the world premiere production of GIDGET, A New Musical written and directed by Francis Ford Coppola.


Most recently Garrett, with choreography partner Ahkai Franklin, founded In It For Life Productions.  Together they have produced 4 Off-Broadway choreography showcases, and 3 dance intensives.


Class Description:

With any style of dance it is important to connect to the dance and to your audience.  Since Tap dancers are recognized as both dancers and musicians, classes will focus not only on technique and musicality, but on performance as well.  All classes will include warm-up exercises, technique study, and progressions across the floor.  Combinations will include a range of styles and sometimes fusing styles together.  Students will leave sweating!  Come in ready to learn, live, and dance!


We as a dance community shouldn’t be afraid of tap dance, or any style of dance for that matter.  Instead we should embrace each style and recognize that they are all complimentary. 


Feel free to come to basic class in sneakers if that’s what you have.  Come on in and give it a try!
