Tap dance classes emphasize developing and strengthening basic tap technique and terminology, highlighting the importance of rhythm and sound. Tap focuses on rhythms and intricate footwork, creating a percussion instrument out of the dancer’s feet. Just like jazz vocalists who add rhythms to music by scatting, tappers, and their voice by “scatting ” with their feet. Rhythm tap tends to be a heaver or harder-hitting form of tap than Broadway tap, and sounds are made not only with the bottom of the shoe but also with the back, sides, and tip. Rhythm tap is a broad category that encompasses the hoofing styles of current starts such as Savion Glover and the late Gregory Hines and past masters such as Bill “Bojangles” Robinson and Jimmy Slyde.
