TapTastik at Britain’s Got Talent Semi-Final

30 May 2017
TapTastik closed the show on the second night of the semi-finals, literally with a bang! With a routine that paid tribute to the golden era of Hollywood musicals (perfected over a short period with rehearsals of 6 – 9 hours per week), they shone in every way, including their beaming smiles. Although it marked the end of their journey, no one could be sad because they had every reason to be proud of their performance and the whole experience had been magical.

If you have no experience of tap dance but think it looks like fun (it is!), Total Beginners Tap Dance is the course for you. Starting with basic steps and progressing steadily through the weeks with different tempos and combinations of steps, you won’t feel like a total beginner for long. For beginners level 1 to 4 a knowledge of the basics is needed as these classes have already done 1 to 3 terms of 12 weeks.

The classes 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.
