Tap is a type of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. The sound is made by shoes that have a metal “tap” on the heel and toe. There are several major variations on tap dance including jazz tap, classical tap, Broadway tap and post-modern tap. Classes are offered for students 5 years old and up. Tap helps develop rhythm and coordination. In recital, all tappers will perform 1 routine.
