Tap dance is a form of dance that uses the sounds of tap shoes striking the ground as a form of percussion. The sound is made by shoes that have metal taps on the heel and toe. Each part of the shoe makes a particular beat and sound and the dancer’s foot and shoe essentially act as a drum. The two variations of tap are rhythm (jazz) and Broadway. Rhythm tap focuses on musicality, and practitioners consider themselves to be a part of the Jazz tradition. Meanwhile, Broadway tap focuses on dance and is widely performed in musical theater.
Tap dancing is a fun style of dance that anyone can learn, regardless of previous dance experience. Benefits of tap dance include increasing cardiovascular conditioning, strength, flexibility, and coordination.
