Tap Dance Classes In Johannesburg Bedfordview
Tap dancing is a dance style performed wearing shoes fitted with metal taps – it is categorized by spunk, energy, originality and rhythmical tapping of the toes and heels. To the untrained eye, tap dancing is all about fancy footwork and sounds. At Dansation, we aim to teach complete body awareness to produce holistic tap dancers with precision in their steps.
During a tap dance class, students develop musicality, rhythm and timing whilst learning to make music with their feet. Tap dancing is incredibly popular within musical theatre and often seen performed on Broadway and at The West End.
We follow a tap syllabus set out by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) which exposes the student to a wide variety of music including Celtic, Reggae, Swing and Beat Box through to current radio favourites.
Some of the most influential tap dancers in history include Fred Astaire and Bill “Bojangles” Robinson.
