Course description: Want more happiness and bit less seriousness added to your week? This one hour tap class provides percussive playtime for adults (teens ages 15 and up also welcome) that “taps” into our inner courage, creativity, and strengthens our physical and mental health. Tap is a popular style of American theatrical dance which includes percussive footwork with precise rhythmic patterns on the floor. Dancers develop a keen sense of rhythm and balance. This basic level beginner tap class is geared toward those who have had little or no tap training, but will also be fun for anyone who has worn tap shoes before. Registrants may bring their own shoes or borrow a previously loved pair from the MAC. Shoes are available on a first come, first served basis and can be loaned out to those who sign up for the entire session. Comfortable clothing recommended.
