Tap dancing is an expressive dance form that creates music through the striking of metal taps

against the floor. It integrates rhythm, syncopation, and the production of sound alongside

traditional dance movements, focusing heavily on musicality, expression, and the art of

improvisation. In this introductory course, students will acquire basic tap techniques and

vocabulary, along with essential skills in balance and body alignment.
