With its infectious rhythms and lively music, tap dancing is popular with students of all ages. Tap dance relies on unique shoes that have metal “taps” attached to the heels and toes. This art form draws inspiration from other disciplines like Irish dance and African tribal dance to create something that is unique, challenging and fun to learn.
DanceHouse Miami provides tap classes for all ages. As students progress through the various levels, they will build greater dexterity and coordination. Their sense of rhythm will become finely honed, and they will discover that their strength and speed increase with each hour of practice.
Many famous dancers have thrilled generations of audiences with their tap-dancing skills. Well-known names like Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, Gregory Hines and Savion Glover are all recognized as innovators who have inspired young dancers across the years. Movie stars like Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly added ballroom dancing and balletic movements to the traditional tap aesthetic.
Tap classes at DanceHouse Miami reflect all of these influences as well as covering rhythm and contemporary tap techniques. Students offer high-energy performances at annual recitals, and no one should miss out on the fun of this quintessentially American style of dance.
