Tap is a great stress buster and ideal if you can't commit to regular classes, e.g. you do shift work or have school exams to revise for! Any ages from 14 + can attend this class; so far the record is 82! You can take ISTD Popular Tap Tests (meant for Adults and teenagers who come for fun) if you like; they are not stressful and there's much less to learn than children's grades! They do go up to quite a high level though, so can be a good beginning if you've never done Tap but have a background in other dance forms and want to push yourself a bit harder. We also learn dances for performing and you can participate in charity shows - but we don't force anyone - you can make the tea instead, if you want to be involved without 'treading the boards'!
You can wear flat outdoor shoes if you'd like to try a class without buying Tap shoes first, (though it is more fun with shoes), or we sell them, leather costing between £17- £21), keeping most sizes up to 6 in stock. There are often second-hand pairs, too, or we can advise on the best shops if you want to invest in a gold-standard pair or have tricky feet.
If you've had some experience, you might want to come half-way through the class and then stay to the first half, or all, of the more advanced class.
Ballet for Adults
£j7.00 per class, or £36 per 6 week block
Our drop-in pay-as-you-go class will fuse mobility, strength and resistance and balance combined with ballet and other dance exercises to music. Don't be put off if you aren't very fit - your teacher has had four hip replacements due to a hereditary condition, and there is no one who dancing can't help! Your prescribed movements will be geared to YOU, so everyone will feel their body has benefitted in some way. You do have to fill in an enrolment form while virus restrictions continue.
