Do you need tap shoes to tap dance? Is musical accompaniment required? And is it dance, or music, or both? Explore the definition of tap dance with us as we dive into the origins and continued metamorphosis of this percussive art form through the use of various mediums, including sand, leather, and metal. Authentic in their recreation of historic works and absolute in their performances, Capitol Tap and District Tap display a repertoire of works in Note for Note. Percussive music is alive as these intergenerational dancers use wood, leather, sand, and, of course, tap shoes to bring both old and new works to the stage.
