Tap Dance Classes - Beginners

Tap Dance Classes - Beginners

Creative and spontaneous, Tap Dancing allows you to improvise - but first you’ll need to master the basics. Our Tap Dance Classes for Beginners is a step-by-step guide to the essential steps, sounds, and moves of tap dance.

Starting off by learning the sounds you can make, and their names, you will build up to simple steps – both on the spot and travelling steps. You will also learn about rhythm and how to develop the subtle light and shade needed for perfect tap dancing.

Our Tap Dance Beginners Course is suitable for the absolute beginner or those who haven't tapped since childhood.

Tap Dance Classes for Beginners Content

Exact content may differ depending on course duration and your needs, but topics generally covered include:

  • Understand posture: and an awareness of the dancing space
  • Demonstrate how to isolate parts of the body: in order to define a movement
  • Develop basic co-ordination: of arms / feet / head
  • Perform a selection of short basic choreography from West End shows
  • Fundamental footwork combinations: warm up and cool down / introduction to simple routines

You'll receive friendly feedback throughout the course.

Please note - tap shoes are required for this course. If you do not own tap shoes you can buy a pair here, and you can read more on what to wear to a Tap class here.

The teacher was fab, she gave us enough individual attention but also brought us together as as a group.

Nicola was fantastic as a teacher, and I feel that the beginners level moved just at the right pace, and I feel that I accomplished a lot!

Tap Dance Classes – Beginners tutors


All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
