Tap dance is believed to have originated in the 1800’s, with roots in African & Irish percussive dances. This electrifying style of dance is characterized by the distinct sound of a “tap” on the floor caused by metal plates on the heels and toes of tap shoes.
Part of the Broadway & Jazz genres of performance, tap is an extremely high energy, vibrant and rhythmical dance with the ability to create an instant celebratory atmosphere – perfect for opening the show.
