Tap

Ages: 5 and up

Tap is the most rhythmic of the dance forms. Tap is an excellent way to increase coordination of the mind and body and to develop a sense of rhythm, timing, and expression. It explores the use of smaller muscles of the feet and body, along with the larger ones. Significance is placed on the articulation of tap sounds while working to perform them "close to the floor" and on the "balls of their feet" along with "style and presentation."

Emphasis is placed on the fundamental rhythms, body alignment, vocabulary, level, accenting, shading and weight changes of tap dancing. Simple steps follow a warm-up involving flexibility and strengthening exercises. Steps are ultimately choreographed into short combinations. As the student advances, the steps and combinations become more intricate and challenging.

Classes include: warm ups; technique; across the floor work; and a dance combination.
