What is it?
Tap dance has a number of ancestors. It is a mixture of the English clog dance, Irish step dancing and African drum rhythms. Come along and start tapping in this high energy tap class. You will learn all the basic steps, building up to simple routines. Tap is not only great for physical fitness but it also works the mind by incorporating rhythm and movement together. You will learn more complicated steps and new dance rhythms and sequences and these steps will then lead to a short piece of choreography which will be new each week.

Who is it for?
Anyone aged 55+ at an advanced level. Beginners and intermediate classes are available at other times for all abilities.

What should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothing and tap shoes or strong hard soled shoes.

What do I need to bring?
We recommend bringing a bottle of water with you to class.
