Tap Classes for Kids
All Kid Tap Classes are gender-neutral, and all dances and music are age-appropriate. There are no exams or uniforms. Any performances that the children participate in are low-key and low-stress, with minimal costume demands and definitely no make-up! We have some tap shoes available to borrow. You have the option of term or casual payments. Send a Tap-mail or fill out an Enrolment Form or call the Tap-phone 0439 445 280 to get started.

The Senior Kids' Classes are still about enjoying dance but at this stage they are ready to start learning more complex tap technique. Tap staples such as flaps and shuffles are the basic drills, then we delve into more challenging steps such as time-steps, wings and pickups. Their tap routines are also more complicated and introduce performance elements.
