Tap dance dates back to the middle of the 19th century, with roots coming from English Clog Dancing, African American dance and Irish Step-dancing. The dance is characterised by a rhythmical tapping sound which is attained from the small metal plates on the dancer’s shoes.
The innate musicality of tap dancing 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.
Our studio offers tap dance classes for children aged 5 years and upwards across Batley and other surrounding areas including Ossett, Morley, Dewsbury, Heckmondwike and Birstall. Pupils are encouraged to develop their own musicality and confidence.
