Tap dance originated in the United States in the nineteenth century, and is popular
nowadays in many parts of the world. The name comes from the tapping sound made when
the small metal plates on the dancer's shoes touch a hard floor. This lively, rhythmic
tapping makes the performer not just a dancer, but also a percussive musician.
Tap dancing is great for improving co-ordination and musicality as it focuses on
timing and beats. Tap is constantly becoming more popular due to groups such as the
Tap Dogs, STOMP and the movie Bootmen.
