To all you budding Fred Astaire’s and Ginger Rogers’ out there, there is a new 5 week introductory course starting this week on Thursday 25th September 6:30-7:30pm at the new Bird Studios, Brighton. The studios are located on New England Street, just off Preston Circus, Please email Drew to register your interest.
This is for absolute beginners to tap dance and also those who have had little previous alternative dance training. It is a great place to get to grips with your tap foundation from which your technique will be able to grow.
You feel the next level is getting overwhelming and you want to go back to basics. You are welcome to stay in this level for as long as you like.
We will cover posture, rhythm, foot placement, co-ordination and learn steps such as Taps, Beats, Digs, Springs Shuffles, Paradiddles, Ball Changes and begin short, slow combinations of steps.
Please email Rachel, to be added to the mailing list for the next course. Those on the mailing list get first refusal of a space, before the course is advertised on the website.

You are confident with the Level 1 basic steps and are ready to learn more complex combinations which will form the basis of all of our warm up exercises such as Time Steps, Shuffles, Pickups, Waltz steps and Cramp rolls.
You have tapped before and just need to learn the warm up exercises before transitioning to the next level.
These will be taught in slow and repetitive bursts, to enable you to build muscle memory and eventually speed and precision.
The courses run by Adult Dance Brighton are suitable for all ages and will give you a lot more than a spring to your steps. There is a very sociable ambiance and the eclectic range of music adds to the varied nature of the tap lessons.
Please email Rachel or more information on when new courses may be starting and to be added to the mailing list.
Hello and welcome to the all new Adult Dance Brighton website, we hope you find it more informative and easier to use then its predecessor. It was developed to work on normal desktop and laptop computers and a wide range of mobile devices like Apple’s iPad & iPhones (and other similar products). It may look slightly different to people on varying computers and mobile devices, Operating Systems (Mac OS X, Windows, iOS or Android etc) and browsers. Most of the time the differences will be small and hardly noticeable, but as most devices (and their software) work slightly differently from others, it is possible the odd glitch may be found so your feedback and opinions are very welcome.
