Tap Dance

Tap dance is a type of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. The sound is made by shoes that have a metal “tap” on the heel and toe.

 

Tap dance has evolved as an American dance form, popularised throughout the world, with debate about its origins coming from African dance, Irish dance and English clog dancing. Tap dance is a theatrical art form often seen on stage in musicals.

 

Our tap classes follow the ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers Dancing) syllabus, and like ballet, we introduce tap at a young age starting with Pre-Primary and Primary Tap then moving on through to Grade 6 and lastly followed by the Vocational Grades – Inter Foundation & Intermediate. The ISTD is an international dance teaching organization founded in UK since 1904. The ISTD sets the syllabus and examinations for ISTD Tap which ensures that the students progress and reach the levels required.

TAP DANCE PRE-PRIMARY

Pre Primary tap is the first level of the ISTD Tap syllabus developing the basic movements of this timeless and classic technique. Tap offers children the great freedom of expression and a fantastic way to develop rhythm and coordination.
