This class will introduce students to the joys of making music with your feet! Students will become familiar with jazz music and swing rhythms, will learn basic tap dance steps and will explore body-music connections through percussive dance. Young dancers will be given opportunities to play and create rhythms through improv games and will be introduced to people who made significant contributions to jazz music and tap dance.
