Graded dance classes are perfect for dancers wanting a strong foundation in technique. All graded qualifications hold credits and are equivalent to GCSE and A-Level at the higher levels.
Tap is a rhythmical form of dance and a genre that never fails to impress audiences 42nd Street, Top Hat, Tap Dogs and of course the greats, Bill, Fred, Ginger and Gene to name a few examples. Tap Dance can be combined with many styles such as Musical Theatre, Jazz and Street meaning Tap is a favourite genre of dance for many dancers to learn.
Students will learn the correct technique to simple tap steps and exercises allowing them to slowly build on their execution and vocabulary of steps and rhythmic response. As students progress they will learn how to layer basic steps to create harder and more intricate combinations and rhythms. Eventually, students will be able to produce a full length tap dance routine ready for the stage!
Students will also have the opportunity to put what they have learnt to the test by taking an I.D.T.A or I.S.T.D Graded examination. Certifications are globally recognised and carry UCAS points at the higher levels. Please visit the I.D.T.A or I.S.T.D website for more information.
Combine your Tap Dance class with Jazz Dance to strengthen your technique, line and execution of steps.
