Kinesis: Tap Dance Classes

Historically, tap dancing arose in the mid 1800’s as a mixture of multiple percussive dancing styles from Africa and the British Isles. It is characterized by the dancer tapping, striking, and sliding along the dance floor with special tap shoes. Tap dance classes offered by Kinesis will increase your fitness, rhythm, balance, and coordination; most importantly, our tap dance classes are a lot of fun! We offer beginner tap dance classes through advanced tap dance classes for ages 5 and up, as well as combination tap-jazz classes for ages 6-12. Our more advanced tap students have the opportunity to learn jazz and tap performances in the Spring Concerts. Scroll down through our tap dance classes below to learn more about each class and to register!
