Historically, tap dance started in the mid 1800s with minstrel troupes, and later developed out of Irish step dancing or clogging. 

Tap is a dance style that allows a dancer to create sounds with their feet! Tap shoes have two tap plates: one on the toe of the shoe and one on the heel. When dancers strike their shoes on the floor, unique rhythms and patterns are created. Choreographers may choose to use music with elaborate beats or can teach dancers to create their own percussion on the floor without music (acapella).

Tap classes at Dancsync are taught in a structured learning environment. Students learn syncopation and work on developing their athleticism, coordination, and musicality. Repetition and practice are key to mastering the skills and technique of tap dancing.
