Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sound of one's tap shoes hitting the floor as a percussive instrument. The sound is made by shoes with a metal "tap” on both the toe and heel areas of the shoe. Two major variations on tap dance exist: rhythm (Jazz) tap and Broadway tap. Broadway tap focuses more on the dance. It is widely performed as a part of musical theater. Rhythm tap focuses more on musicality.
Our intermediate through advanced level classes provide a combination of both styles so the students are well rounded and versatile in their tap skills. Tap classes are very regimented focusing on the technique of this dance as well as rhythm and musicality. Students will have a clear understanding of counting music and syncopation and therefore have the ability to create different rhythms and patterns using intricate foot work. Advanced level students are given the opportunity to create their own rhythms and choreography.
