Tap shoes sought for DMS class Members of Delaware Music School's "Tappin' and Clappin" program perform at the Milford Hospital Fair. "Miss Debbie" Kee has created a new kinder-program for the Delaware Mu- sic School, called "Tappin' and Clappin," a 30-minute per week combination of rhythm, singing and tap dance for boys and girls in kindergarten and the primary grades. It is now available to the public and to school and commu- nity organizations. Tap shoes are fairly expensive, considering how quickly children's feet grow between the ages of five and 10. The Mu- sic School is, therefore, starting a Home for Old Tap Shoes (HOTS) program in various sizes. These shoes would then be made available to children to attend the Tappin' and Clappin' program. Anyone wishing to donate old tap shoes is encouraged to call the Delaware Music School at 422-2043. Tappin' and Clappin' is offered in various locations throughout southern Delaware. Also planned is a special summer of 1998 Tappin' session along with a new student strings camp, in cooperation with the Rehoboth Art League.
