TAP
This original American art form, along with Jazz music, share a unique “marriage” in the performing arts.  Based on the influence of rhythms from many ethnic sources. Tap not only trains the student as a dancer, but as a musician/percussionist as well.   Heartbeat’s Tap instruction reinforces the musicianship of the dancers.  Correct technique and the freedom of improvisation are equally important at Heartbeat.  Tap students, even the very young, may find themselves using hand drums as part of their Tap dance training.  The intricacies of Jazz music and its relationship to Tap dance are also stressed.  The dancers soon find out that they are the music; the time keepers; the soul in what their soles can do!
