Benefits of tap dancing: 

For kids and adults alike, tap is extremely beneficial to cognitive functioning. It increases your memory through having to remember steps and put them together in the order that they are shown to you. Your senses of rhythm and timing are also guaranteed to increase the more you pursue dancing. This is especially true for tap dance, which forces you to listen to both the specific rhythms from your feet and the music playing to create the performance.
