TAP

Class Description

The rhythm & movement of tap, created by the metal taps on the heels & toes of a dancer’s shoes, transform the dancer into a percussive musician. Tap dance emphasizes the flow of movement by teaching the dancer to find rhythms & beats not only in music but also in their own bodies.

Making sounds with different parts of the tap shoe, toe taps, heel digs, shuffles & ball changes are taught at the beginner level. Each level of tap is geared toward mastering of skills & building upon the technique previously learned.
