Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by a tapping sound that is created from metal plates attached to both the ball and heel of the dancer's shoe.
Common tap steps include the shuffle, shuffle ball change, flap, flap heel, cramproll, buffalo, Maxi Ford, single and double pullbacks, wings, stomp, brushes, scuffs, In advanced tap dancing, basic steps are often combined together to create new steps. The group of dancers must work together to create the sound keeping their steps at the correct speed to match each other. When done right a tap acapella can be lovely to hear. Our tap classes will perform in our evening shows.
