Tap dance is one of the most popular dance forms of American origin. It is a rhythmic solo dance, which gained world fame in the first half of the 20th century. Like most American dances, tap is a derivative of many different forms, such as African Shuffle and Irish Jig, clogging and many more.

Dancers perform rhythmic sequences of cramps, strokes, slides and knocks, emphasized by their shoes, which are usually equipped with plaques. Apart from giving a lot of joy and really looking great, tap is a great way to practice balance, strength, agility and musicality. You’re not only a dancer, you’re also becoming a drum instrument, playing together with the band.
