Tap This American dance style uses special shoes that have metal on the toes and heels so the dancer can make rhythmic noise while moving. Like Ballet, Tap dancing requires technique, development and dedication. Our Tap classes will follow a leveled curriculum. Students must excel in all steps prior to advancement.
