Dance - Tap - Beginners

Course intent

If you’ve ever been inspired by the Hollywood musicals, or fancied yourself as the next Ginger Rogers or Fred Astaire, this course will help get you started on a journey of shuffle-hop-steps and step-ball-changes. Tap Dance is fun, noisy fitness!

What will we cover?

The intent of the course is to learn tap dance steps, sequences & combinations, at Beginner level, leading to learning a choreographed dance routine.

You will also be developing your body awareness and general dance skills.

Our courses build on past learning, week by week, to develop new abilities. You will find your own progress much easier if you attend every lesson.

Who is this course for? Is there anything I need to know before joining?

This course is aimed at complete Beginners and those with fewer than six months’ experience of tap-dancing lessons.

As our courses are taught in English, please contact us if you have any concerns about your level of English.

What do I need to bring to the first class? Will there be any extra costs?

Tap shoes will be essential and should be brought to every lesson. If you have any questions about the sort of footwear to wear, please contact the Customer Service Team on 0300 200 1044.

You will need to wear clothing that you can easily move in such as t-shirt and leggings.

You will also need drinking water.

What can I do when I finish the course?

The Beginners course runs for a full academic year, and you are encouraged to re-enrol in the following term, from September to January to April.

For the following academic year, an Improvers course could be arranged, subject to demand.

Alternatively, we have other dance courses which may complement this course and also other fitness courses. Take a look at our brochure, or online, to see what there is on offer.

Additional information
