Favorite Style of Dance
Ms. Kelsey’s favorite style of dance is tap! As a child, she always loved making noise and tap was the perfect outlet. Tap has always come naturally to her and with the steps came the speed. Some of Ms Kelsey’s favorite dances have been tap dances, her favorite being a routine she performed in Dance Troupe called Jelly’s Last Jam where the music cut out in the beginning of the routine and they finished the dance with no sound but the taps on their feet. What she love about tap is the different variations in sounds and variations in speed that tap can be performed with and the crisp, clear sounds of tap steps.
