Tap and Modern

Our classes follow the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD)

Tap is where a dancer uses their feet to strike the floor, beating out different rhythms. Tap shoes have small metal plates on the toe and heel to give the distinctive sound. Tap dance is a theatrical art form often seen on stage in musicals.

Modern Theatre dance is a rhythmic dance style which originated in America before travelling to the rest of the world. It is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities. The style uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps and turns which all need strength and flexibility. This is a highly energetic dance style.
