The Tap Program
Tap is a hybrid form of percussive dance born in America out of African and European traditions. Tap evolved along with American music that would become known as jazz.
With a focus on rhythm and musicality, dancers will learn various tap techniques and progressions using the feet as their instruments.
We offer 5 levels of Tap training.
At this level, the focus is on learning the basic steps and concepts of rhythm. This includes short exercises, across the floors, dance routines, and lots of games and fun!
Students work on expanding their tap repertoire and increasing the complexity of sequences of steps. Students at this level begin to focus on musicality and performance.
At this level, students work on complex sequences of movements including wing steps, maxi-fords turning, pullbacks and more. There is an emphasis on speed and cleanliness of sound, while incorporating upper body movements and mature performance.
Adult tap is a fun, drop in class available to any abilities and all adult ages! Each week differs between learning basic steps, completing across the floor exercises, and exploring different styles of choreography.
