Tap Classes

Tap dance has its roots in the fusion of African tribal dances and Scottish, Irish, and English dances. It is a percussive dance which incorporates the sound of the shoe striking the floor. There are two main types of tap: rhythm (jazz) tap and Broadway tap. Our classes teach elements of both styles.
