DANC 114 Tap Dance I

Tap I will provide the student with a basic competence in Tap Dance and an awareness of its historical origin. It is an introductory course which does not require previous training, but demands a professional approach by the student. The practical part of this course will focus on the proper articulation of individual movements and steps as well as the recollection of short dance combinations (e.g. time steps, rhythms, and short routines). Together with the proper implementation and the proper use of the terminology, the student will study the fundamental technique of tap dance. The scholarly part of this course will cover the historical roots of tap dance and will introduce well-known masters of this performing art.
