  • Tap

    CTS offer Tap lessons for ages 2+. Tap is a form of dance which is characterised by using the sounds of tap shoes to strike the floor as a form of percussion. We offer lessons to prepare for exams grades and enter pupils into local and national competitions.

    Tap dance has two major variations, rhythm (jazz) tap and Broadway tap. Broadway tap focuses on dance; it is widely performed in musical theater. Rhythm tap focuses on musicality, and these dancers consider themselves to be a part of the jazz tradition. Jazz can be integrated into spectacular routines that really do make a noise! Pupils are encouraged to develop their tap skills integrating each stage into a routine or simply to move through the grades.

    Classes are £6.00 or £4.00 if multiple lessons are taken, trial lesson is FREE.
