Often associated with Hollywood’s golden age and the likes of Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, tap dance is an American dance form that involves rapid foot-tapping movement. Special shoes with metal plates create a distinctive sound while dancing, allowing the dancer to become an instrument and contribute to the dance in a whole new way. Thanks to films like ‘La La Land’, tap dance is seeing a resurgence in popularity and is a great dance form for those with a lot of energy or who are seeking some additional focus.
