Miss Caroline Tap Dance
Miss Caroline Tap Dance is the perfect school for people who are scared of performing and for those who love it! Everyone has a good time at our shows, including the audience. Both kids and adults get to show off their tap-dancing skills each year, but our approach to performing is different to most dance schools. Our performances are designed to be non-stressful for all involved. No long hours of dress rehearsals, no huge bills for costuming, no make-up on children (the grown-ups can wear it if they want!). We have separate shows for the kids and adults. The shows are a chance to see what everyone has learned, in a fun and supportive environment.
You can see from the faces in the photographs that everyone has a good time! Even the nervous adult students! The Grown-ups' show is more like a Christmas party, with food and drink afterwards. First-timers are usually apprehensive, but they're all keen to strut their stuff again the next time round.
As for the kids, well, along with their terrific end-of-year show - where they often get to showcase acting skills as well as dancing skills - the tapkids are also regular performers at local fetes and fairs. These outdoor gigs are a smash hit with the highly appreciative audiences. The kids draw a huge crowd and everyone has a blast. The tapkids do a fantastic job every time, dancing not just with skill but with joy and enthusiasm. They make their families (and their tap teacher) incredibly proud.
