Tap 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 dancers use their feet to strike the floor, beating out different rhythms, wearing tap shoes, which have small metal plates on the toe and heel to give the distinctive sound. Tap dancing is great way of helping children with concentration and enhancing their listening skills, because in order to pick up the rhythm they must watch the movement and equally listen to the sound.
Our tap classes follow the ISTD syllabus. Exams are optional and can be taken from the age of 5 years upwards.
