Dance therapy has a broad range of health benefits. It has been demonstrated to be clinically effective at improving body image, self-esteem, attentiveness, and communication skills. It can also reduce stress, fears and anxieties, as well as lessen feelings of isolation, body tension, chronic pain, and depression. In addition it can enhance the functioning of the body’s circulatory and respiratory systems.
Hand tap is an innovative tap dance class done from a seated position hitting metal plates (attached to hand gloves) onto a wooden board which is placed on your lap! This seated format is great for people who have difficulty standing for long periods of time, people who use wheelchairs, or anyone who would like to try a new take on a popular style of dance. We can come to you- Please contact us to set up a session at your location. With Tap Fever Studios, anyone can dance if given the chance!
