A Haven of Opportunity for Artists and a Place of
Wonder for Audiences
Haven Arts Theatre is a new professional, non-equity theatre company in the greater Houston area. We are committed to producing high quality theatre with local performing artists.
Art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth.
Haven Arts Theatre is now offering weekly tap classes. These classes are $60/month. Payment will be due for each month on the second Tuesday of that month. Please pay by cash, check, or Venmo (@HavenArts-Theatre).
Classes will be held in Spring TX. Feel free to contact Amy with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
You will need to provide your own tap shoes. Amy recommends laced tap shoes with screws. You can buy these at Jazz Rags or Fancy Dancer. Amy is happy to answer any questions about buying shoes.
Hope to see you there!
