Tap dance makes frequent use of syncopation. Tap dance choreographies typically start on the eighth beat , or between the eighth and the first count. Tap was formed from other types of dancing, such as ballet, jazz and contemporary clogging. Hoofers are tap dancers who dance only with their feet, making a louder, more grounded sound.
