Tap Classes at On Pointe School of Dance
Tap is a form of dance characterized by a tapping sound that is created from metal plates that are attached to both the ball and heel of the dancer’s shoe. These metal plates, when tapped against a hard surface, create a percussive sound and as such the dancers are considered to be, somewhat, musicians.
Ages: 2 years and above
