Beginners Tap


Start Date: Monday 14th January, 2019

Duration: 10 weeks

Day: Monday 8.00 till 9.00 pm

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.

Intermediate Tap


Start Date: Monday, 14th January, 2019

Duration: 10 weeks

Monday: 7.00pm till 8.00pm

Location – Downs Junior School, Location 1

To join the Intermediate class, you know most of the warm up exercises from Level 2 and are ready learn more complex warm up combinations such as Suzie Q’s, corner work and so on, whilst maintaining a fairly steady pace and still reviewing the detail.


You are an experienced tapper who can pick up the warm up exercises “on the hoof” so to speak but needs a little breakdown on each exercise before learning and moving to the next level.

Each week we will review at least one warm up exercise/combo in detail and there will also be dedicated time to learning new steps and routines.

Please email Rachel  for more information on when new courses may be starting and to be added to the mailing list.
