Our Technique Tap classes teach a uniquely American dance form that grew out of African, Irish and Latin folk music and dance traditions. Tap is a percussive style of dance that uses rhythmic footwork to make sounds, rhythms and melodies while creating steps and choreography. Dancers will learn a combination of more traditional Broadway style Tap and Rhythm Tap. Dancers will focus on learning basic Tap rhythms skills and vocabulary while having fun and engaging their minds and bodies.
No previous experience required, although some dancers have 1-2 years experience. This fun and engaging introductory Tap class is geared for pre-teens who are interested in dance, music and rhythm. Dancers will learn basic Tap steps and vocabulary along with musicality and choreographic style.
Intermediate/Advanced Tap (7th & up) 3-4 years of previous experience recommended. Dancers will learn a challenging combination of Broadway style Tap and Rhythm Tap while focusing on enhancing their Tap technique and vocabulary. Dancers will also be challenged in rhythmic footwork, syncopation skills, melodies and learning complex choreography.
