Tap is a form of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes, which have a metal tap on the heal and toe, to strike the floor. The sounds make you the musician along by creating rhythm and percussion with your feet. There are two major styles of tap dancing, Broadway and rhythm/hoofing. Broadway tap focuses on dance; it is widely performed in musical theater. Rhythm tap focuses on musicality and quicker movements. Every class includes a warm-up, center floor technique, across the floor work and a dance combination. Tap dance is great for coordination, articulation and musicality.
