This has evolved as an American dance form, popularised throughout the world, with debate about its origins coming from African dance, Irish dance and/or clog dancing. The dancer uses their feet to strike the floor, beating out different rhythms, with dancers wearing tap shoes, which have small metal plates on the toe and heel to give the distinctive sound. Tap dance is a theatrical art form often seen on stage in musicals such as; Anything Goes, 42nd Street, Book of Mormon and Billy Elliot. The classes are technique based with opportunities to take ISTD examinations from primary to ADV2 level. Freestyle tap classes are also offered which are primarily performance based. Tap is brilliant for the development of rhythm, which all dancers need to master. This is definitely a style that once the fundamentals are learnt develops a great feeling of performance …classes from Tots upwards!! our *Peter Pan Starlets*
