Tap Dance Classes - Improvers 1

Tap Dance Classes - Improvers 1

Join our Tap Improvers course to take the basic steps further and combine them in short routines and exercises.

Our Tap Dance - Improvers class has been designed to take your skills to the next level and directly follows our Tap Dance - Beginners course.  However, even if you haven't tapped since childhood but can remember your single shuffle time step, this might be the class for you.

Tap Course Content

The pace of this class will be faster than the Beginners class, but not too fast – we’ll make sure there's plenty of time to master the combinations while building your tap dancing confidence and fitness:

  • 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
  • Posture and coordination exercises: and weight transference
  • Perform a selection of short basic choreography from West End shows
  • Fundamental footwork combinations: warm up and cool down / introduction to simple routines
  • Learn and practice short dances: and put on an informal showcase for family and friends

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.

Hear from our students...

Scientist by day, Tap dancer by night. Tap student Risa Mori spoke to us about using dance to switch off and have fun!

"I think anyone who’s ever put on a pair of tap shoes will understand the wonder and joy of being able to make noise just by walking!"

Tap Dance Classes – Improvers 1 Venues


Tap Dance Classes – Improvers 1 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.
