The attached links will provide tutorials to help you tap like the dance majors on campus or quickly learn a basic non-tap dance version! Join in on the fun and help demonstrate how Hilltoppers unite! Meet other programs and departments, show your WKU pride, join our surprise guests, and help support Dance on the Hill!
