Tap Improvisation

Improvisation is an absolutely essential part of dance education and perhaps more so in tap than in other styles. Tap dance is a very virtuosic art form and the ability to ‘think on your feet’ is absolutely necessary in order to experience everything that tap has to offer. A rhythm tap style fusing both technique and choreography.  The class explores rhythms, syncopation, and call and answer techniques.  Tap routines are taught in a range of styles including theatrical (Broadway) tap, jazz tap and rhythm tap.  Students may also learn original choreography from tap legends that has been handed down to tap dancers for decades.
