Tap dance is a type of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion.  The sound is made by shoes that have a metal “tap” on the heel and toe.  Types of tap dance include rhythm (jazz), classical, Broadway, and post-modern.  Soft-shoe is a close relative of rhythm tap dancing that does not require tap shoes.  Rhythm is generated by tapping the feet and also by sliding the feet.

Pictured below are the Rhythm Tappers from our “Advanced Tap” class.
