Even though we are mostly just using our feet and legs, you will be sweating! Make sure you wear proper clothing! Change before and after class, just like a typical Physical Education class! Wear clean socks and deodorant!
Unisex Tap Shoes We will be using tap shoes that are meant for both men and women, so that all students can share shoes in a variety of sizes.

Rhythm is like a heartbeat! We will clap, tap, and say rhythms out loud, because you cannot tap dance without rhythm!
