Tap is an exciting, percussive style of dance using shoes equipped with metal ‘taps’, with a rich history dating back over a century. Tap classes begin with a warmup to stretch the muscles of the legs and feet. Dancers practice a serious of basic tap steps, adding more difficult combinations and speed as they become more proficient. You will create rhythms and sounds, explore syncopation and feel the music through your feet. Tap dance is a vigorous form of dance that builds aerobic fitness and muscle control. “I would imagine that if you could understand Morse code, a tap dancer would drive you crazy.” – Mitch Hedberg
