Tap

Tap dance dates back to the middle of the 19th century, with roots coming from English Clog Dancing, African American dance and Irish Stepdancing. The dance is characterised by a rythmical tapping sound which is attained from the small metal plates on the dancer’s shoes. The innate musicality of the dance has led to its sustained popularity in a wide range of theatrical shows, including “42nd Street” and “Billy Elliot” which both include an amazing display of tap work. The school offers Tap classes for chlidren and adults. Pupils are encouraged to develop their own musicality and confidence. Formal Tap qualifications are also available through the I.D.T.A. (International Dance Teachers Association).
