This dance form was developed in America in the 1800’s. Tap is a rhythmic style of dancing using shoes with metal ‘taps’ designed to help the dancer make rhythm. Students will learn timing, balance, coordination and teamwork during a high energy and fast paced class. Be prepared to have fun! Tap is seen in many films featuring stars from Shirley Temple to Gregory Hines.
