Tap dance is an American art form, born of the fusion of cultures on American soil. Established in 1904 the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) is one of the world’s oldest and most influential dance examination boards.
Tap encourage the development of rhythm and an understanding of sound. In the very young dancer it assists with counting and the ability to hear different rhythms in the music then try to create their own rhythms.
Confidence is developed through the listening and responding to sound and often helps the very shy to communicate.
