Tap Dance

ISTD Examination Class

The DFTS Tap Dance classes follow the ISTD syllabus and work on structured exercises and amalgamations. Learning to tap will teach children the enjoyment of dance through the different sounds and the creation of rhythms.

Within a tap dance class children work on technical exercises to improve the quality of their beats, line and style, body alignment and learn to develop light and shade within a sequence of steps.

The rhythmic content of the work covered will improve musicality and development of different music styles. These classes are designed to increase simple beats from a young age to percussive feet improving your child’s rhythmic awareness, timing, co-ordination and sense of performance, whilst gaining a toe tapping sense of achievement.

Children can start Tap classes from 2 ½ years of age.

This is an ISTD Examination class – pupils have the opportunity to take an exam within this discipline from the age of 6 years.
