Adult Tap Class at Montgomery College
February 8 @ 11:00 am - April 19 @ 12:15 pm$194
Discover tap dance, the dominant performance dance form of the early 20th century. Invented in the African American community, tap quickly became the standard in vaudeville and musical theater, later forming the basis for jazz dance. Perform the basic steps of this percussive, syncopated dance style and walk in the footsteps of greats like Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, Fred Astaire, Sammy Davis Jr., and Shirley Temple. Learn to shuffle, flap, paddle, and roll and build simple rhythmic combinations that can combine into more complex choreography. This course is designed for new dancers and those who have never explored tap dance formally.
