TAP

Tap dance has its roots in the fusion of several ethnic percussive dances, primarily African tribal dances and Scottish, Irish and English clogging.  Tap is an entertaining form of dance where rhythm and rhythmic variations are the highlight to any musical accompaniment.  Quite possibly the most intriguing form of dance, for the young to the "young at heart".
