These dancers really worked their ears!

In this Toronto tap dance class, we worked on counter rhythms and teamwork, just like a Tap Dogs show. There are four parts. And the most important aspect of this tap class? Listening. Really using your ears. That’s the most important skill a fantastic tap dancer needs to master.
