Tap Dance Classes - Improvers 1

Showcase your step, shuffle and scuff! Our Tap Dance - Improvers 1 class is designed to take your skills to the next level and directly follows our Tap Dance - Beginners course. 

Be innovative and daring in our Improver’s class, combine your knowledge from Tap Dance Beginners and grab the chance to use the “single shuffle time” step you’ve learnt and perform it in unison.

Finesse your footwork in a supportive environment and strengthen your skills as you receive constructive feedback from one of our expert tutors.

Greater focus will be given to posture and weight transference as you explore more routines. Finally, you’ll perform a short showcase for friends and family to flaunt your new talents. Our Dance Improvers 1 Course is the best place to build your Tap Dancing confidence.
