Step/Tap dancing is a combination of traditional Island step dancing and tap technique! Step/tap classes focus on rhythm and intricate footwork to create a percussion instrument out of the dancer’s feet. Dancers develop coordination, musicality and rhythmic awareness through this exciting dance style. Our award-winning Havenwood Step Dancers have performed at concerts, fundraisers and ceilidhs across the Island, the Maritimes, in Disney World and even for the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall on their visit to Canada!
Why both step AND tap dancing? Why not one or the other? Havenwood classes are unique in that they combine both of these rhythmic dance styles. We believe that both Step and Tap technique are integral to a well rounded percussive dancer, as well as speeding up the learning process for both very specific styles of dance. Tap technique helps to improve your step dancing, and step dancing helps elevate your tap dancing. From time to time we will offer classes solely focused on tap or solely focused on step, however after 25 years of teaching this unique combination of the two, we are confident in its success and the enjoyment it will bring to you or your child’s class experience!
