Tap dance is the most effective way to develop precision in rhythmic movement and sound.

Pupils love the challenge presented by tap – they also love the sound. 


  • Held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays

  • Suitable for children from 5 years old to advanced level.


This energetic and exciting class is designed to provide young dancers with an introduction into the fundamentals of tap dance. Early exposure to the rhythms and unique mind-to-foot connection associated with tap dance will allow students to progress and excel at the art as they move through life.


Tap focuses on rhythms and patterns in footwork through proper technique, as well as personal style and producing clear sounds. These classes are for dancers who like rhythm, precision footwork, and creative styling. Exercises focus on building flexibility of the knee and ankles, coordination, and speed of movement. As students progress through each level curriculum will become increasingly more complex and intricate.
