In tap dance class, you’ll be training your musical ear as well as your body. Tap dancers use the metal taps on the toes and heels of their shoes to produce an endless variety of sounds and rhythms that differ in dynamics and even pitch. This class is fun and informal, providing a great way to get fit as tap is  energetic and upbeat. Each step is well explained and our aim is to build your confidence, movement vocabulary and co-ordination in a relaxed and informative way.  Develop your skills  as weincorporate technique and creativity; with rhythm, clarity of sounds, and historical influences.The class includes warm-up, stretches, isolations, across-the-floor progressions, and combinations. Over the term the technique and patterns will become more  complex and intricate to keep your mind working!


WHAT TO WEAR
When dressing for  a tap  dance class, think about wearing clothing that allows you to move. LUKI classes are casual and relaxed!  A dancer's body lines need to be visible, however, so baggy clothes are generally discouraged.  Most of our dancers prefer to wear leggings and a figure fitting tank top.
