Tap

 

Tap dance is a style of dance which developed in the United States in the 19th century. Originally, tap dance appeared in black minstrel shows, but by the 1920s, it had become popular with both blacks and whites.

In tap dance, performers wear shoes which have been equipped with metal plates. As the dancer moves, the plates click against the dance floor, creating a characteristic tapping sound. Tappers can create a variety of percussive rhythms with their feet by tapping, sliding, and clicking the metal plates.

Tap dancing focuses on rhythm and musicality and has been seen on Broadway for many years. 

We offer the Pullars Dance Academy Tap syllabus and the students are examined yearly at Newcastle Dance Academy.
