Tap is all about rhythm. Children learn to use the toe and heel taps on their shoes to create a variety of percussive rhythms by tapping, clicking and sliding. Pupils perform improvisations both individually and in groups.
Styles include both Broadway and American Tap. Broadway Tap encompasses the showy, stylised movements seen in West End musicals. American Tap is a more street-based style with fast, close footwork and less emphasis on body movement.
