The sounds of tap dance is achieved by using the metal plates on the tap shoes to beat out rhythms. Often, tap is used as the all-out big theatre show-stopper due to its loud and vibrant energy and distinctive look.
RDS have a wealth of experience in this dance form and have trained a wealth of dancers to a very high standard over the 35+ years. We follow the ISTD syllabus and agree with their description of tap, believing it to be ‘one of the most enjoyable and rhythmic forms of recreational dance’.
Tap is a fantastic, albeit a little bit noisy, form of exercise! It will help with coordination and rhythm in a way that nothing else can. Classes are suitable for 4 years and up. Formal exams are available for this dance style if pupils wish to be entered.
