What is Tap?
Tap dance is a uniquely American art form, with roots in African, Irish, and English dance forms. Before it was known as "Tap" dancing, earlier varieties of percussive dancing using wooden-soled or soft shoes began appearing on stages in the 1800's, featuring prominently in minstrel shows, before gradually coalescing into the metal-soled style that exploded in popularity on vaudeville stages and, later, the big screen. Today, the art form has evolved in technique, style, and variety to become a versatile and sophisticated form of percussion and dance. Whether your inspiration is Fred Astaire or Gregory Hines, Eleanor Powell or Chloe Arnold, our Tap program will get you started on the right (or left) foot!
