What is Tap Dance?

Tap dance was developed in the US in the nineteenth century, and is a very popular style of dance. The name comes from the tapping sound made when the small metal plates on the dancer’s shoes touch a hard surface. This lively, rhythmic tapping makes the performer not just a dancer, but also a percussive musician.

Tap Classes

At BAPA Tap classes start with the basics and build solid tap technique in a fun and supportive environment. Exercises, improvisation skills, and simple combinations give a foundation for learning tap repertory in higher levels. All students are required to take ballet at beginner levels to complement and build upon their dance skills. All students are placed in class according to tap level, age and motor skills.
