Tap Dance Classes
Everyone loves to tap dance!
From 'Fred & Ginger' right through to the 'Tap Dogs'

This has evolved as an American dance form, popularised throughout the world, with debate about its origins coming from African dance, Irish dance and/or clog dancing. The dancer uses their feet to strike the floor, beating out different rhythms, with dancers wearing tap shoes which have small metal plates on the toe and heel to give the distinctive sound. Tap dance is a theatrical art form often seen on stage in musicals
We follow the ISTD syllabi in Tap Dancing - which is designed to allow young children to explore the ideas of rhythm and percussion. Again, a structured programme of study guides towards a level of accomplishment that eventually leads to Vocational study.
