Tap

Tap is all about rhythm, footwork, and taking dance beyond the visual to the auditory, using your feet as a
percussive “instrument” to create sounds as you dance. Key elements in tap class are timing, rhythm, and musicality, and a variety of music is used, although at times we dance a cappella (with no musical accompaniment) to better hear the sounds we are making with our feet. We incorporate various tap styles into our tap classes, including Broadway tap and Rhythm tap.
