Some of the benefits of tap dance include increasing cardiovascular conditioning, strength, flexibility, and coordination for students. Tap builds strength in the legs and feet in addition to increasing flexibility in the hips, knees, and ankles. Cognitive abilities are also enhanced, as tap dancers must develop both mental and muscle memory to become proficient at tapping.
Parents can enjoy both the movements of the dancer and the sound of the tapping, with tap dancers performing either alone or with musical accompaniment.
Tap dancing also develops a great sense of rhythm and timing. Our tap instructors help students focus on music awareness while incorporating tap steps and combinations.
