Tap Dancing is a very close relative of Lindy Hop. They both developed in parallel with the jazz and swing music of the early part of the 20th Century. This four week session will get you started with the fundamental techniques of Rhythm Tap Dancing. Starting with shuffles and flaps, and moving on to paradiddles and maxi-fords, you’ll be a regular Fred Astaire in no time! No prior dance experience (Tap or Lindy Hop) required. Come with or without tap shoes.
