The blurb to describe the cluster:

The blurb: TAP Into It

Play with rhythm while having fun in this exploration of the world of percussion and tap. Watch tap as it evolves through time in film, studio and stage and observe tap dancing by some of the tap dancing greats. Then, explore the possibilities of sound as we experiment with percussion on various surfaces in and out of the building. Practice tap steps like the brush, scuff, shuffle, scuffle, flap, stomp, stamp, spank, heel and toe click, and paradiddle. Come put on you tap shoes and Tap Into It!
