DANCE CLASSES - TAP CLASSES

What is Tap?

 

Back in the 1930s, tap dancers of all levels started gathering in the streets to dance, with the 1950’s seeing tap dance literally explode onto the scene. Tap is a form of dance that is often associated with old Hollywood films.

 

While for the most part people no longer go tap dancing in the streets, it remains one of the most popular dance genres children are enrol in.

 

Tap is an amazing way to spread joy and have a good time, using feet as the sole musical instrument. .
