Tap Dance

Tap” is a percussive style of dance. Tap focuses on rhythms and intricate footwork, creating a percussion instrument out of the dancer’s feet. Special shoes are worn by tap dancers to create various rhythms on the floor. While the rest of the body is still crucial to this art form, and general balance and grace are important, the fundamental characteristic of “Tap” is the sound it creates. There are different styles of this dance form, from the more classical form to a more modern, aggressive style called “hoofing”. Our Tap classes teach students an overall comprehension of rhythm, tap technique and terminology which will greatly enhance their coordination skills.
