What is Tap?

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 dance; it is widely performed in musical theater. Rhythm tap focuses on musicality, and practitioners consider themselves to be a part of the Jazz tradition.

The sound is made by shoes that have a metal “tap” on the heel and toe. There are different brands of shoes which sometimes differ in the way they sound.

Teacher Feature:

Kaylin Barber – Beginner Tap

I started dancing at the tender age of 3 when the Razzle Dazzle of a Ballet class captivated me. Who could resist the charm of a little pink tutu?

I started dancing more seriously at the age of 8 when I began my training in Tap and Modern dance. I competed in many eisteddfods, showcases, and exams through the years, and dancing never seemed to lose its charm. I still attend numerous classes in various dance styles and love the thrill of performing on stage!

I am now a qualified Tap dance instructor with the Association of Internal Dance Teachers (AIDT) and continue my studies by learning as much as I can about music, anatomy, and various dance styles. The creativity and talent out there never ceases to amaze me.

Robyn Strydom – Intermediate Tap

I started my dancing passion at a young age. Quickly finding a passion for theatre and performance my dancing career took me far and wide traveling across the world. I am qualified in AIDT Tap and Modern dance. I also have experience in Acro, musical theatre and contemporary styles. Dancing has taught me skills that have enhanced my working career and personal life. Dancing offers a stress release and fun outlet for busy minds while keeping your body fit and healthy.
