Tap – where a dancer's musicality begins.
For YOUTH classes (ages 8yrs and under)
About our tap dance classes
Tap is based on American tap dancing style, with the feet as an instrument. Two major variations on tap dance exist: rhythm (jazz) tap and Broadway tap. Broadway tap focuses on dance; it is widely performed in musical theater. Rhythm tap focuses on musicality, and practitioners consider themselves to be a part of the Jazz tradition. Rhythm, syncopation and timing are stressed as well as proper technique.
