Tap offers an element of aural training to your Dancing Studies.
Distinguished by percussive footwork, that marks out precise rhythmic patterns on the floor.
Some descriptive step names are brush, flap, shuffle, ball change, and. cramp roll.
Tap dancers make frequent use of syncopation. Choreography typically starts on the eighth or first beatcount. Another aspect of tap dancing is improvisation. This can either be done with music and follow the beats provided or without musical accompaniment, also known as acappella dancing.
A wonderful way to improve your rhythm and aural awareness.
Dance Star always strives to offer their students the very best in knowledge and keep them up to the technique required for their level.
Its important to have good attire in all classes.Teachers and students need to see the clear line of the body to correct alignment and technique. Baggy clothing is not suitable for this. Correct attire for class is essential.
