Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. Two major variations on tap dance exist: rhythm (jazz) tap and Broadway tap.

Associated Dance Art for Professional Teachers (ADAPT)
The Foleys presented the dance guideline to a small group of dance studio teachers attending one of the annual Brian Foley Summer Schools for tap and jazz dancing. These teachers then taught the curriculum in their own studios for the following dance year. The teachers found the material innovative and challenging, yet fun and inspiring for their students as well as themselves. The ADAPT Syllabus was born!
Dance teachers were excited to find a dance syllabus which helped create a strong, solid technical foundation, along with artistic expression. An up-to-date, current syllabus enhancing the highest standards of jazz and tap dance excellence in the dance teaching industry. ADAPT allowed students to better prepare if they were interested in joining the dance profession. Dance teachers quickly grew to love ADAPT. They were proud of the excellent standard of dance training ADAPT helped them to create.
