Adult Tap Classes Info & FAQ

Discover the joys and benefits of tap-dancing with Miss Caroline Tap Dance - it's great for fitness, fun and mental health!

Adult classes run for one hour. They start with a warm-up, then it's time to concentrate on technique. After that, you'll learn a fun routine (a new one each term) followed by a cool down and stretch.  All classes emphasise making dance fun whilst still teaching quality tap-technique!!

What to wear/bring?
Tap shoes not necessary to start but try to wear non-grip shoes (runners are no good, try leather soles.) There are a few pairs of tapshoes available for borrowing in a limited size range. Wear loose comfortable clothing and prepare to sweat (and to have FUN!) We recommend you bring a water-bottle, you will need it!

Miss Caroline Tap Dance is easily accessible via public transport, within a short walking distance of the 96 (stop #17) or 112 trams (stop #21)

How do I start?

Fill out an obligation-free Enrolment Form. Use this one if you have Previous Tap Experience and this one if you are an Absolute Beginner. Call the Tap-phone 0439 445 280 or email Miss Caroline for more information.

When Can I Start?

It's best to join a class at the start of the term, ideally in weeks 1-3. If you are confident about picking up choreography you could join in weeks 4-5 but we can't hold up the rest of the class to catch you up. After Week 6, no new students can be accepted, but you can join at the start of the next term.  Keep an eye out for school holiday classes, as these are 'drop-in' sessions and a great introduction to our school.
