Tap dance is a style of dance that is characterized by the sounds of metal taps on the dancer’s shoes, which are used to create rhythmic patterns and beats. Tap dance is a form of percussive dance that combines elements of African American and Irish dance styles, and it has a long and rich history in American popular culture. The dancer creates rhythm and sound by striking the floor with their feet, using a variety of steps and movements to create intricate patterns and beats.
