About Tap Dance Improvers (DA10 Summer)

Develop your tap dancing skills further and learn more complicated routines.

What will you learn on this course?

This course will build on your existing tap dancing skills. You will learn more complex tap steps focusing on correct technique. 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. The course also focuses on developing musicality and presentation techniques when you are dancing.

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

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