Tap classes at CORE teach dancers to make music with their feet!
Tap is a genre that differs from others, in that dancers must be aware of both the sight and sound of their movement. A classic discipline, it has great use in developing dexterity, rhythm and timing.
Students wear tap shoes with two pieces of metal on the soles and work to hit rhythmic patterns. Dancers focus on staying in unison (within group dances), timing, and clarity of sound.
Beginning students become acquainted with basic movements of the leg, foot and shoe as they learn to dance rhythmically. Intermediate students begin to build an extensive tap vocabulary and explore more complex rhythm patterns.
