Who is this course for?
This course is suitable for adults aged 18+. You should have strong previous tap dancing experience such as attending mac’s Tap Dance Improvers course or having completed upper Tap grades to a high-standard. You should be confident in all basic steps and have reasonable knowledge of more advanced skills such as American paddle steps.

The course is accessible for people with disabilities providing you are physically able to dance to this level. A support worker or a carer may assist. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs.

Tap dancing is a high impact physical activity, especially on the legs. You need a good level of physical fitness but the course is also a good way to maintain and improve your overall fitness levels. If you have any health conditions you should consult your doctor before joining this class.

What will you learn on this course?
This course will build on your existing tap dancing skills. You will 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. 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 lovely view of the park.

Do you need to bring anything?
Please bring your own tap shoes. You should also bring a water based drink to every session and wear suitable clothing that allows free movement. You should bring a warmer top to put on after the class.

Are there any additional costs?
You must supply your own tap shoes at your expense. These can be easily purchased online or from dance supply shops.
