Want to add rhythm and styling to your dance? Tap dancing is great fitness and provides a fantastic foundation to allow more creativity and movement in your swing dancing.
Back by popular demand, Jamie is excited to be offering Tap classes! Tap dancing has its roots in the fusion of several ethnic percussive dances, including African dances like Swing. Some of the greats of the 30s and 40s were inspirational in their tap abilities, like Fred Astaire and Eleanor Powell – see below!
