Tap & Irish

Tap (1st grade – Adult)

The art of Tap involves the whole body. Good Tap-dancing is performed with control, speed and smoothness. Movements of the arms, legs and body are incorporated with the tap steps. In tap technique classes, the exercises and combinations directly develop a sense of coordination, body control, the rhythmic sense and detailed development of the feet.

Irish Dance (Ages 3-Adult)

The success of River dance and Lord of the Dance has placed Irish dance on the international stage. Thanks to people like Michael Flatley and others, Irish Dance is seen on television, on tour, and locally at festivals and celebrations. At DDC&G traditional steps, complete with traditional music, terminology, and respect for the rich culture of Irish Dance is explored in a non-competitive atmosphere.
