Tap is a fun and entertaining dance class for all ages.
Tap is a percussive form of dance characterized by the sounds made by metal “taps” found on the bottom of the heel and toe of tap shoes. By striking the floor in different ways, a tap dancer can create a variety of sounds and rhythms. Whether set to music or “a cappella” (without music), tap dance is a fun and entertaining dance style for all ages.
Dance Unlimited tap classes emphasize rhythm, style, and proper technique in a positive and engaging environment. At Dance Unlimited, we incorporate a variety of tap styles into each class, from classic tap dance technique to newer contemporary methods including Rhythm tap and Broadway tap styles. A blend of these techniques creates well-rounded tap dancers who have a strong understanding of music and performance with exceptional musicality and style.
At the beginner level, students learn basic tap steps, combinations, and rhythms with an emphasis on proper technique. As dancers master new steps, become stronger, and gain confidence in their technique and rhythmic ability, they will progress from basic to intermediate and advanced class levels.
Class levels follow a dedicated syllabus to allow the students to continue their training in a class best suited to their experience, skill level and learning style. At the completion of every school year, dancers showcase their tap skills and technique in the annual recital.
