Tap Fever’s main goals are to provide opportunities to anyone with the desire to dance, and to make it a dance a positive experience for all. Here at Tap Fever Studios we believe that students, regardless of ability, should be integrated into our scheduled classes. We have many opportunities for students with special needs to join classes (with an assistant if needed) as well as the option to hold private classes or workshops for a group that wishes to dance together.
We support our community by offering scholarships and
Tap Fever continually strives to prove their message, “Anyone can dance if given the chance!” From ages 2 to 102, people of any ability have the chance to dance.

Tap Fever Studios first opened April 1, 2008 in the basement suite of 7301 Girard Street in La Jolla. After a short time we were lucky enough to find the wonderful community of Bird Rock a couple miles down the road and we relocated to (the above ground location) 5628 La Jolla Boulevard. We stayed there for about 3 1/2 years, then found a larger home at 683 Turquoise Street, where we hope to stay for a very long time. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, we grant dance scholarships, offer accessible dance classes, and have built a strong bond with our community. Contributions to Tap Fever Studios go toward the expansion of our special programs and outreach.
Tap Dancing has been around since the 1800′s and has long been a staple vaudeville and the stage. In the last couple of years the popularity of tap dancing has experienced a strong resurgence, especially among kids who have seen the award-winning, animated tap-dancing penguin movie, “Happy Feet”. And while seeing their kids out there on the dance floor, many adults remember the joy they experienced when they took tap lessons so many years ago, along with dancers they admired such as Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, and Ginger Rogers. Well now it’s time to get back in the game! With dancers like Gregory Hines and Savion Glover, America is still the breeding ground for tap dance innovation. As the young dancers learn from the more seasoned, they inject the dancing with their own new steps and styles. In San Diego, it all begins with Tap Fever Studios!
