Ages 5 year and up
Tap is a great dance style for those who like to make noise!
Students will learn tap rhythm steps and combinations. Dancers wear special shoes with metal toe and heel plates and strike the floor as a form of percussion. We teach the NZAMD Tap syllabus and offer exams for those who wish to sit and an adult’s open class.
