Dance - Tap - Mixed Ability

Course intent

Tap dancing gets the heart rate up and is perhaps more enjoyable than a visit to the gym! It tones the major muscle groups in the legs and core and is a super fun and sociable way to stay in shape.

What will we cover?

You will be learning the basic tap dance steps, sequences & combinations, leading to learning a choreographed dance routine.

By the end of the 5-weeks you will learn the essential tap techniques of knowing where the body’s weight should be and when to shift the weight from one foot to the other. One of the first things you will learn is proper weight placement over the balls of the feet with soft knees and an engaged core. Training the muscle memory in this way will improve your balance, coordination, and control. And the benefits of a strong core are numerous, including less back pain and risk of falling.
