Part lecture and part physical introduction to tap dancing, tap dancer Gerson Lanza shares the history and background of this American percussive art form. You will engage in activities to help channel rhythm, body coordination, and musicality. Additionally, you’ll learn how the body can serve as an instrument using sound and visuals to tell a story.
The workshop also includes a live performance demonstration of how tap dance has served as a catalyst for Lanza’s Afro-Honduran culture to flourish in his rhythm.
