What is Tap?

Tap is perhaps the kind of dance that – thanks to Hollywood’s film industry – has created the most dance lovers in the world. Tap comes mainly from the mix of African and European cultures in the United States, and it has developed hand in hand with jazz.

It is actually a social dance and we make the music with our feet. Tap community is growing more and more all over the world and there are many festivals year round, where we meet, dance and share our love for tap. Tap is culture, it is art, it is fun and everybody loves it!

Recommended shoes for Tap

  • Our teacher, Xavier, recommends the Capezio cg55 for it is a good and reliable start shoe.

  • In Dansemessen the Capezios are 650kr. Capezio is discontinuing this model and it will be replaced by the Cadence Tap Shoe CG19.

  • In Stræk og Bøj the Blochs Bloch BS0301M (male) and Bloch BS0301L (female) are also a good option for 699kr.

  • Cheaper models are not good and cannot be recommended.

  • In Dansbutiken (Sweden) they have a more expensive model, which is also very good: Bloch BS0313M (male) and BS0313L (female).
  • Choose always shoes in Oxford classic style, like the Capezios and Blochs mentioned above The shoes should feel tight. That means no extra space for your foot inside the shoe.

  • High heels taps are not for beginners.

  • Sometimes you can get second hand shoes on Den Blå Avis.

  • Ask Xavier for advice if you find second hand shoes
