Tap Dance Classes

Tap dance is a style of dance whereby performers wear shoes which have been equipped with metal plates. As the dancer moves, the plates click against the dance floor, creating a characteristic tapping sound. Tappers can create a variety of percussive rhythms with their feet by tapping, sliding, and clicking the metal plates.

DSCF4875Parents can enjoy both the movements of the dancer and the sound of the tapping, with tap dancers performing either alone or with musical accompaniment.

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.

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.

Panorama School of Dance has been offering dance classes in Surrey for over 35 years. Our experienced and friendly staff make our tap dance classes something that students truly look forward to attending every day.

    About Panorama School of Dance

    Panorama School of Dance has been teaching children to dance in Surrey and Delta for over 30 years. Our first students are now coming back with their own children! This is an amazing sight to see and a testament to the unique experience that these young mothers remember from their childhood.

    Panorama not only teaches children how to dance, but promotes personal development, poise, self-confidence, health and fitness. Throughout the years we have grown from a small local church studio with a dozen students to a dance school with 2 locations including 6 studios and over 500 families. Through this growth, the personal touch has not been lost.
