Tap Dance is an exciting form of dance which has its roots in Irish Step Dancing, Lancashire Clog and American Jazz Tap. There are two major variations; rhythm (Jazz) tap and Broadway tap which focuses on performance and musicals.

Tap is often described as “conversation with the feet” due to the variety of rhythms and light and shade used. It is a form of dance that is enjoyed by young and old alike.
