Tap is an energetic form of dance that is fun for all ages as it builds aerobic fitness & muscle control. It is characterised by using the sound of your tap shoes hitting the floor as a percussive instrument like drums to create rhythmic patterns and timely beats to the music. Class begins with a warm-up to stretch the muscles of the legs and feet, basic steps both stationary and travelling and short combinations to create different sounds and rhythms.
A key ingredient of tap is balance, so it’s great for those looking to improve their posture. It is also a great workout for your mind as it is known to help ward off Alzheimer’s & Dementia so why not give it a go! What have you got to lose?
