Tap is our favourite of all the percussive dance styles and here at SK Dance Studio, we LOVE it.
With a reputation for producing dazzling tap choreography featuring dancers of all ages, we’re regularly invited to perform in professional theatres, which is always an amazing experience for our students.
For most age groups, we teach tap in our Saturday school as part of a combination class which covers both tap dancing and modern dance in one session. The exceptions are our adult tap classes and classes for our older students which are both held on Tuesday evenings.
SK Dance Studio follows the world recognised ISTD syllabus (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) in our tap dancing classes with classes taught by fully qualified teachers.
Our students work towards achieving graded ISTD tap examinations, learning progressively more difficult steps and amalgamations along the way as they move through the grades.
We also use free tap work sessions to develop the performance technique of our tap dancers. This gives the opportunity to try out different styles of tap to really varied music and helps to keep learning really fun and fresh.
SK Dance Studio has long been recognised for exceptional tap teaching. We teach ‘real’ tap steps, right from our very youngest age groups – which means when it comes to showtime, our dancers do way more than skip around in tap shoes!
From timesteps to Maxi Fords, wings and riffs to “shuffle off to buffalo”, our perfect mix of syllabus work and performance tap makes for dazzling all round tap dancers.
