Learn to tap dance & enhance rythm awareness
Timing And Percussion
The tap dance program at CDC is offered to students of all levels and concentrates on teaching our dancers the ability to communicate dance through sound. It also increases their awareness of rhythm and syncopation. The program is known for enhancing each student’s ability to combine musicality with performance quality. Originating in the United States, tap dance was formed through a combination of influences such as African, Irish, and Scottish dancing. CDC’s tap faculty helps each dancer to broaden their understanding of tap by teaching timeless steps as well as modern tap technique and style. Steps of varying difficulty are taught progressively through the year, allowing each dancer to master techniques at his/her own pace. One of the first dance forms to be created, tap is a fun class anyone can enjoy! From flaps to triple time-steps, tap dancing is a great way to build your child’s multi-tasking skills and confidence.
