Tap is an exciting, fun rhythmic style that develops musicality, rhythm and co-ordination in a creative and fun environment.
Basic elements of jazz and terminology will be taught using the ISTD syllabus as a framework for training.
The class begins with a warm-up to stretch the muscles of the legs and feet. Dancers practice a series of basic steps, adding more difficult combinations as they become more proficient. They will eventually complete tap combinations in choreography with speed, clarity, style and ease.
With the steps that are taught, they will also explore improvisation to different types of music with different beats and rhythms. This will help the student develop a style of his/her own.
