We are for all adults who love to dance and live in, or near, Brighton.  Focus is mainly on Tap Dancing which is one of the most impressive dance forms, both exciting and exhilarating to learn and watch. 

Whether you’re a seasoned tap enthusiast, someone returning after several years or a complete newcomer, dance is fun, keeps you fit, healthy and flexible whilst improving balance and co-ordination skills.  A great way to meet people, develop new friendships and enjoy the odd social event with your fellow students. See previous students testimonials about Adult Dance Brighton classes and reviews of shows.

Our small team of teachers are all experienced, professional dancing instructors and choreographers.  All classes are relaxed and friendly, providing the ideal way to learn.

We offer a variety of courses and classes in Tap Dance and Jazz Dance styles that cover the entire skills range – from Beginners to Advanced and even SemiPro standards.  Our Dance Classes are for adults only, aged 16+ years – book a course and find out why there is such a buzz about our dance lessons.  You will enjoy learning technical skills during our classes in a fun and friendly atmosphere

You will also appreciate the eclectic choice of music spanning several decades in our  Tap Dance classes, where you could find yourself dancing to an old-time classic like ‘Singing In The Rain’ and all kinds of familiar songs from musicals or a jazzy version of a modern classic like ‘Wonderwall’.  The music is selected to complement the varying rhythms of different steps, amalgamations and syncopation, making it a Taptastik combination.  As with the Tap classes, Jazz Dance classes combine technique with creativity, including learning a routine in easy stages and putting them all together, culminating in a final showstopper!

Rachel McKeague-Pittman

Rachel began her professional career at 14 when she tapped her way into Bugsy Malone in the West End, with renowned choreographer Gillian Gregory. Following that she trained at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art which was a classical theatre drama school, but also known for its singing training and dance!

Her career then kicked off with a season at Regents Park Open Air theatre where she performed in 2 shakespeare plays and a musical (where she taught Roy Hudd to tap dance!) This was generally the sign of things to come, as she continued to tour the country in a wide variety of Classical Plays, Musical Theatre, TV, West End Children’s Shows and Physical Theatre. One of her her favourite roles was playing Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz for 2 years on a number one tour, alongside Brian Blessed, Peter Duncan, and Toyah.
She has been dancing with Drew Wood for the last 15 years, performing alongside him in the live semi-finals of Britains Got Talent with all our other fabulous tappers.She is delighted to be able to take over the reigns from Grand Master Taps (aka Drew) and looks forward to continuing his legacy of superb adult tap in Brighton.
