Tap dancing is made up of rhythmical sounds produced by movements of the feet. Students develop a sense of rhythm, coordination and timing. The two most important elements are the ability to articulate from the ankle, leg and the clarity and separation of tap sounds. Shuffle ball change and stomp your way through a fun class that combines rhythm, sound and movement. There are no “standard” body, feet, or arm positions, but the body placement stems from ballet training
