Int. Tap

Tap is a form of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. Tap can be traced back to the 1700s and is informed by the Irish Jig, English Clog, and African-American traditional body percussion. A major contributor to the art form is the West African Gioube which is a dance brought in by enslaved Africans. Tap shoes are encouraged for this class to better practice producing the proper rhythms made by taps.

Intermediate: For dancers who have mastered fundamentals up to Beginning/Intermediate and are ready for more challenging choreography that focuses more on detail and texture of movements taught at a quicker rate.
