Adult Tap Dance Lessons

Join our Tap classes at Emerson Park Academy every Tuesday at 7pm.

Currently we only have an Improvers/General level class running.

Beginner Class

A step-by-step guide to Tap introducing the essential steps and sound and rhythms.

Building up the simple steps and their names, helping you to master the basics.

We can then take those basic steps and combine them into fun short routines.

Suitable for the absolute beginner or those who haven’t tapped since childhood.

This class is a lot of fun and great to learn with like-minded people.

Improvers/General Class

This class takes your skills to the next level after the Beginners class.

Also suitable for those who tap generally and those who tapped as a child and need to brush up again.

This Tap class runs at a faster pace to the beginners.  A lot of fun and lots of dance routines!

Fun filled tap dances to your favourite show or pop tunes incorporating steps from your past or new.

What Our Clients Say

“Hi Tina – just to jet you know the dance went very well – was fantastic and had the shock effect we wanted. We smashed it. Everyone thought it was brill – we got aaahs for me and Paul and then big cheers throughout. It was recorded but has come out too dark – such a shame – we should have turned the lights up more. Thank you again. Paula x”
