Tap Dancing Classes

Based on rhythm this fun way to exercise basically uses your feet as a drum kit!  It is beneficial in many ways including increasing cardiovascular condition, strength, flexiblity and co-ordingation.  Tap dancing builds strength in the legs and feet in addition to increasing flexibilty in the hips, knees and ankles.  Cognitive abilities are also enhanced, as tap dancers develop mental and muscle memory as they become proficient at tapping.  Most importantly tap dancing develops a great sense of rythm and timing, which is why we incorporate in our junior dancer's programs.
