Tap Class

 

          

Tap Dance is an essential skill for the professional dancer. It is one of the most enjoyable and rhythmic forms of recreational dance. It is excellent for co-ordination, musicality and above all it is loads of fun.

Tap dance consists of a series of steps which can be linked together in any way to procuce a routine. The easy part is learning the steps, the tricky part is remembering which order the setps come in the routine !! Tap dance is also great for stimulating thoses brain cells.......

                                                                                                  

Tap dance classes are available to children from 4 years of age up to and including adult.
