About Miss Caroline Tap Dance
There is just something about tap-dancing that makes you happy. The combination of music, movement and rhythm gives you a natural high. So if you are looking for something fun to do this year, contact Miss Caroline and come join her happy band of tappers. Experience for yourself the benefits of stepping outside your daily stress for an hour of fun.
Tap is excellent for physical and mental fitness, and most of all, anyone can learn it and have a great time whilst doing so.
Classes for Grown-ups are open to all ages, sizes and abilities. Classes start with a warm-up, followed by some technique work so that students learn the tools of the trade. And then we dance: original choreography to grooving tunes (or a'cappella for something a bit more primal) plus traditional tap standards such as The Shim-Sham-Shimmy.
If you are looking for dance classes for children, then Miss Caroline Tap Dance is a warm and friendly environment, perfect for kids to find the fun of dance. The classes are full of games, great music and fun choreography, but they also teach the children proper technique. More details on Kids Classes page .
