The dance form that makes the dancer a performer and a percussion instrument The tap sound is made by the metal plates on the shoe hitting the floor. The skill is to co-ordintate the steps to make the sound rhythmical! Superb for improving co-ordintation and counting as well as flexibility and rhythm. Tap dancing is lively and fun, and can be danced to almost any type of music.
Using the NZAMD syllabus we have junior and senior classes in 2017. The syllabus introduces Tap to young children in the Rosette grades and through fun exercises progresses through to Advanced and Solo Diplomas.Taught by Donny Waters, who was competing at a national level in Tap by the age of 16yr, this is one of Donny's passions in life. Grab some tap shoes and come and have a go!
