If you look at the schedule for the upcoming season, you will notice that I teach combo-classes: Ballet & Tap, Jazz & Tap, Hip Hop & Tap. I believe in the importance of being a well-rounded dancer and tap is part of that. It’s noisy, fun, energetic and upbeat!
Tap dancing is a fun style of dance that anyone can learn, regardless of previous dance experience. Tap dancing is beneficial in many ways. Benefits of tap dance include increasing cardiovascular conditioning, strength, flexibility, and coordination.
Tap dance combinations build strength in the legs and feet in addition to increasing flexibility in the hips, knees and ankles. Cognitive abilities are also enhanced, as tap dancers must develop both mental and muscle memory to become proficient at tapping.
Engaging in tap dancing also develops a great sense of rhythm and timing. Tap instructors help students focus on music awareness while incorporating tap steps and combinations. Best of all, tap dance is a solo dance style…you don’t need a partner to do it, although that it is fun to join someone else tap dancing, too.
