Dance - Tap - Improvers

Course intent

If you have taken our Beginners Tap classes for a while, or if you did Tap as a child and can still remember your Single Flap and Shuffle Time Steps, you may want a course that lifts your Tap skills to the next level.

What will we cover?

The intent of the course is to learn tap dance steps, sequences & combinations, at Improver 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 you make the most progress if you attend every taught lesson and complete any self-directed study opportunities provided.

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

This course is designed to appeal to more experienced Tappers with at least one year’s experience of regular Tap dance lessons, including ex-Tappers wishing to return to their practice.

It is not suited to complete beginners.

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?

At the end of the academic year, in discussion with your tutor, you can decide what the best progression for you might be.

The tutor will also be able to advise you on external courses, workshops and other opportunities to develop your understanding, knowledge and skills.

Additional information
