Tap is 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 experience required! Beginner Theater Dance will include all types of dance that will assist your performer in learning and perfecting their Musical Theater craft. The class will focus on soft shoe, rhythm, jazz, stylization, and character building. A perfect intro for your performer that wants to build more dance training.
