Tap is typified by daring and rhythmical footwork accentuated by a shoe with metal plates on the toe and heel. As a genre, it’s an enjoyable, inspiring education in timing, rhythm, and technique, which encourages individuality in style as well as discipline in group work. Students learn shuffles, beats, rolls, wings, breaks and time steps – all to demonstrate their musical prowess.
The bbodance Tap syllabi equip students to perform at a professional standard, adapting to varying styles and choreography throughout the levels.
bbodance also provides an additional syllabus for adults or late-starters in an easy mode. All work has accompanying compatible jazz music improvisations.
