Tap dance is a style of dance that explores how the body can make rhythm both individually and collectively in a group of peers, primarily utilizing metal taps on the sole of the shoe. Tap classes greatly benefit students interested in theater, percussion, and other dance styles as the classes are designed to develop an understanding of music theory, weight shift and control, and rhythmic coordination through audible articulation of the feet. Students will be challenged in a way that leaves them feeling motivated and inspired. The skills will become more advanced and intricate as the students progress through each level.
