Tap Dance Company

Our Tap Dance Company is one of City Academy’s premier resident dance companies. With weekly rehearsals and regular in-studio showcases throughout the year, The Tap Dance Company will help you take your tap dance to the next level.


The Tap Dance Company is led by dancer/choreographer Rory Cubbin


The Tap Dance Company is open to anyone over the age of 18 that has completed a Tap Improvers 2 course at City Academy, an equivalent course elsewhere, or for those that have performance experience in Tap dance.

By doing so you’ll take part in a regular company rehearsal in a relaxed studio setting, giving you the perfect chance to meet the rest of the group in action. Following the class, we’ll email with an invitation to either join the company or provide suggestions for further training. The purpose of the session is so that you can meet the Company Director as well as get an idea of what membership entails and the level of performance involved.
