Tap is as much about creating sound as it is a physical performance. Tap dance is a lively and entertaining activity that transforms the dancer from a mere performer into a fully-fledged percussive instrument - taking its name from the tapping sound created by dancers’ feet.
Tap dancing also has fitness benefits too such as cardiovascular performance, toning your lower-body muscles and burning off those extra calories;
Boost cardiovascular performance - If performed at a high intensity for 15 to 30 minutes, tap dancing offers great exercise for the cardiovascular system, working out the heart and lungs so they function more efficiently. Strong CV performance is vital to ensure that muscles are supplied with a steady flow of oxygen.
Tone leg muscles - Tap dancing offers a great way of toning your lower-body muscles by optimising the thighs and quads.
Reduce the risk of high blood pressure - If you suffer from high blood pressure, tap dancing could offer an effective way of bringing it down. Tap dancing gets blood flowing around all the body’s major muscle groups, causing arteries to dilate and contract more effectively.
Burn fat - If you’ve been trundling on a treadmill for what feels like an eternity, maybe it’s time to try something new. Tap dancing is a surprisingly effective activity if you want to burn calories quickly. Depending on the intensity of your tap workout, anywhere between three and four hundred calories can be burnt off.
Most importantly Tap dancing is FUN! Our classes are very relaxed and we encourage everyone to enjoy themselves, learn a new skill and keep fit - so what are you waiting for?
