Class Description

Shuffle, flap, and time step your way through some of the zaniest Classic Cartoon Tunes around including: Popeye the Sailor man, Looney Toons, and Yogi Bear. With longtime Hoofer, Suz Ruddock as Instrutor, students will learn essential musical theater tap techniques for a foundational understanding of this genre of dance. This class will be geared to newbies as well as to those students who already have some knowledge of tap. The CYT tap-shoe library is available for any students that do not have their own shoes.


Suz Ruddock

Susan Ruddock is excited to be celebrating her 35th year with The Skylark Tappers! When Suz took her first Interpretive Dance class from Sr. Jeanine Therese, she knew she found her passion for dance. That passion parlayed into a lifetime of diverse dance forms: modern, ballet, tap, jazz & musical theatre. In 2010, Suz was chosen as a local Rockette to open the Radio City Rockettes’ show in Portland. Over the years, Suz honed her tap skills by interacting with Cholly Atkins, Brenda Buffalino, Honi Coles, Linda Sohl-Elison, Fred Strickler, local tap master Terry Brock & countless other tap masters. Suz enjoys engaging in theatre as an actor, singer, dancer, choreographer or assistant director with over 40 shows to her credit. Her most recent venture was Disney’s The Lion King for Kids.
