Put Some Rhythm in Your Life!
Tap dancing is an exciting rhythmic solo dance form distinguished by percussive footwork, that marks out precise rhythmic patterns on the floor. Some descriptive step names are brush, flap, shuffle, ball change, and cramp roll. Tap dancing is a vigorous form of dance that requires a great deal of physical fitness and many adults tap dance to keep fit. Tap dancing is a great way to gain balance, strength, agility and musicality and is a unique dance in that the tapper is both a dancer and a percussive instrument playing along with the band.

A Brief History Of Tap Dancing
The sources of tap dancing include the Irish solo step dance, the English clog dance, and African dance movements. In the 1920s and 1930s, black dancers contributed to the development of new styles of tap dance, and black dance teams became popular for their acrobatic, often satirical acts.
Later tappers like Fred Astaire provided a more ballroom look to tap dancing, while Gene Kelly used his extensive ballet training to make tap dancing incorporate all the parts of the ballet. This style of tap led to what is today known as “Broadway style,” which is more mainstream in American culture. It often involves high heeled tap shoes and show music, and is usually the type of tap first taught to beginners. The best examples of this style are found in Broadway musicals such as 42nd Street.
