Tap

Tap class is fun for all ages. The footwork, beginning with simple rhythms and sounds, quickly advances to more complex techniques. Tap vocabulary is emphasized and styles including waltz clog, soft-shoe, Latin, musical theater, jazz-tap, and percussive tap. Tap focuses on musical phrasing and the complexity of rhythms with less emphasis on the visual part and more on the challenge of "making melodies" with the feet. Most often, tap is danced to jazz based music such as Swing, Big Band, Bebop, Funk and Latin styles.
