Tap, tap, tap your way from Weddington to check out our tap dancing classes.
Have you ever thought about what makes tap dancing so uplifting? Is it the energetic music, the delightful taps as the tap shoes connect with the floor, or how a storyline can come to life with tap dancing? Because all those things are involved, it seems like tap dancing never goes out of style. It even made an appearance in the endearing 2006 release of the comedy musical “Happy Feet”. In this performance, Mumble the penguin needs to lure a female and finds that tap dancing can be every bit as powerful as having a great singing voice.
At Carolina Dance Capital we found an upswing in interest in tap dancing because of Happy Feet and it may be that your child is just itching to give it a try, too. Another thing you may not know about tap dancing is that in 1989, George H.W. Bush declared May 25 National Tap Dance Day, which just happens to be the birthday of one of the most famous tappers of all time – Bill “Bojangles” Robinson.
It doesn’t matter what causes your child to develop an interest in tap dancing. If they do, you will be happy to learn that we are conveniently located near Weddington, North Carolina and have instructors with 100 years of combined dance instruction experience. Our state-of-the-art facility has true injury prevention floors and two-way observation studios, providing a safe environment for your child to learn tap dancing.
We offer both recreational and competitive tap dancing lessons, so whether your child wants to try tap dancing for the fun of it or wants to compete down the road, we will develop their skills and encourage them to grow as a dancer. We offer adult tap dancing recreational classes, as well, so if Happy Feet got you wondering how it would feel, it’s never too late to find out for yourself.
