It is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities.
The style uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps and turns which all need strength and flexibility. This is a highly energetic dance style. We offer classes from Primary all the way through to Advance 2 with regular examination sessions held throughout the year.
Tap has evolved as an American dance form, popularised throughout the world, with debate about its origins coming from African dance, Irish dance and/or clog dancing. The dancer uses their feet to strike the floor, beating out different rhythms, with dancers wearing tap shoes which have small metal plates on the toe and heel to give the distinctive sound.
