Tap is an exciting and challenging art form that developed out of African polyrhythms in America’s Jazz Age. We teach a combination of “hoofing,” or rhythm tap made popular by artists like Savion Glover and Gregory Hines, as well as elements of classic and Broadway-style tap. The form’s musicality and rich percussive traditions are emphasized through fundamental skills and increasingly intricate progressions. Level II tackles more complex rhythms and choreography. Tap shoes required.
