Tap dance class

6th-8th Grade – (Wednesday 6 pm – 7 pm)
9th-12th Grade – (Tuesday 6 pm – 7 pm)

Tap  is a form of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes with metal taps on the soles striking the floor as a form of percussion. Various movements of the feet are put together to learn specific steps and create a clear sound, rhythm and beat.

There are several major variations on tap dance including: rhythm (jazz) tap. classical tap, Broadway tap and post-modern tap. We focus on two styles of Tap dance which is rhythmic and Broadway.

Even though the sounds come from a dancers feet, Tap Dance class is still a full body workout.
