tap dance



Tap dance is a type of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. The sound is made by shoes that have a metal "tap" on the heel and toe. Of its several variations Sunshine Place offers a mix of classical, rhythmic and Broadway in nature. The student is required to dance with tap shoes to appreciate the rhythm and musicality tapping of the feet provides.
