For students under 8 years old we run 3 combination classes (Little, Mini & Junior Dancers) which include a tap section, along with ballet and modern.
The combination classes are great for younger kids as they love the variety and get a taste of them all.
For students aged 8+ we have dedicated tap classes in which we teach the ISTD syllabus from grades 1-5 and offer students the opportunity to sit exams.
Typically, Grade 1 starts at age 8 and Grade 5 is vocational level. Progression through the grades is based on ability not age.
Adult Tap Classes
For students over the age of 18 we run three levels of tap class:
Beginner for people who have never tapped before;
Improver for those with at least one year’s experience and a grasp of the basic skills; and
Intermediate for those at a high level wishing to work towards intermediate grade
Still not sure?
If you aren’t sure what level you should be dancing at, you should contact us for a consultation before booking a class.
