A dance in which rhythmic patterns are sounded out when the small metal plates on the heels and toes of a dancer's shoes touch a hard floor. This lively, rhythmic tapping makes the performer not just a dancer, but a percussive musician. Tap classes will develop rhythm, style and sound. Students will learn a variety of tap styles from Broadway to Rhythm tap. Exercises focus on building flexibility of the knee and ankles, coordination, and speed of movement. Class emphasis is on developing proper tap technique, producing clear tap sounds, and having fun! Available for students 5 years through adult.
