Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. Two major variations on tap dance exist: rhythm (jazz) tap and Broadway tap. Broadway tap focuses on a theater style dance; it is widely performed in musical theater.

Tap Class
Tap dance is a timeless art where dancers wear special shoes equipped with metal taps. Using their feet like drums, tap dancers create rhythmic patterns and timely beats. Tap dancers are popular in musicals, television, movies, and commercials. At Rising Stars, we offer three different types of tap dance classes: rhythm tap (also known as hoofing), funky tap, and Broadway tap. Rhythm tap or hoofing is when tap dancers use a flat tap shoe and use every part of their shoes to make their feet sound like drums.

Funky tap is a combination of hoofing, jazz and hip-hop.
