Tap is a style of dance in which dancers wear shoes fitted with both heel and toe metal taps that create audible beats by rhythmically striking the floor. Tap dancing promotes mental focus and increases memory, balance, and posture. And…it is FUN! At Carolina Dance Center we offer exciting tap classes for beginners through pre-professional dancers. We also offer non recital tap technique classes for advanced dancers who want to learn basic tap vocabulary. And we can’t forget our weekly adult tap class which is extremely popular for all ages and ability levels.

Did you know we offer a dedicated tap performance company (Carolina Rhythm) for ages 8 and up which is sponsored by Carolina Dance Foundation? To learn more CLICK HERE.

Dancers in our competitive company, Carolina Groove Elite (CGE), also have the option to compete tap choreography.


Any color/style dance or athletic attire. Black tap shoes.
