About Tap Dance Advanced (DA11 Summer)

Refine your tap dancing skills and learn challenging routines in this weekly class.

What will you learn on this course?

This course will build on your existing tap dancing skills. Learn more complex tap steps and combinations focusing on correct technique and polished presentation. Each class will provide a combination of strong physical dance warm ups, technical learning of steps, and combining the skills you have learned into dance routines. There is also a focus on developing musicality and presentation techniques when dancing.

The classes are taught through a combination of group teaching and individual supported learning. Dance routines will be produced weekly and over long periods. The routines taught will be complex and challenging. By the end of the course, you will have learned several complete tap dance routines.

MAC has an excellent spring floor dance studio with mirrors and a view of the park.

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for adults aged 18+ years. It is open to those with strong previous tap dancing experience.
