There are many elements to learning tap. Technique, rhythm, musicality, and the fun bit, doing it!

Each class follows a progressive and graded course appropriate to the tap level of the class. This is then creatively applied in the choreography of a variety of dance routines, which develops performance skills. Each dance reflects a different style of music and tap technique, and when completed, becomes part of the program in the end of year performance.

Improvisation is an added feature in the more advanced classes to develop the student’s own style, musicality, rhythm and self expression.
