Tap dance steps make frequent use of syncopation, steps focus on making beats and rhythms. There are several styles of taping, “Rhythm tapping” is done purely with the legs and sounds are louder and grounded. Sammy Davis Jr., Savion Glover, and Gregory Hines are examples of famous hoofers or “Rhythm tapers”. Dancers like Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly incorporated ballroom and ballet backgrounds to create a character/Broadway style of taping. Our classes differ depending on the instructor’s background.
