    tap

    I don't know what "tap" means... at least not in the following context:

    in a text about dancing:
    These classes really keep you moving. I took up tap because it's fun and gives you a great sense of rhytm. Your feet become instruments! Anyone can tap because you set your own pace....

    What does "tap" mean here?

    Re: tap

    Tap is short for Tap dancing in this case.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tap_dancing

    Tap as in tapping ones shoes against the floor with little metal plates on the bottom of your shoes while dancing.

    The sound of the metal hitting the floor could be called a tapping sound - a very short clicking sound.

    Hope this helps ;)
