Admit it, after watching old movies featuring Shirley Temple and Bojangles or Fred and Ginger, you've had a secret yearning to learn to tap dance. Luckily, fun and friendly Tap-a-Holic at Evolution Studios in the San Fernando Valley focuses purely on the art of tap dancing. Its Tap-a-holic class helps even those of you with two left feet learn to step, heel, toe and shuffle in easy-to-follow, Broadway-style beginning classes, and eventually work your way up to advanced workshops. You learn this vintage dance style with a group that's at your level, making it both nonintimidating and enjoyable. For those with a fitness goal in mind, this studio offers TAProbics, a cardio class that uses tap dance as its basis. This being Hollywood, if you continue your tap lessons, you may choose to be part of the school's semi-annual performance recital. —Nikki Kreuzer
