Tap Classes for Boys, Girls & Adults

All ages and abilities welcome!

From first steps to Fred Astaire join us for tap classes in Banstead

At Banstead Academy of Performing Arts we follow the Tap syllabus of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (I.S.T.D)

Tap dance is a form of dance characterised by using the sound of ones Tap shoes hitting a surface (the floor) as a percussive instrument. Two major variations on Tap dance exist, Rhythm Tap and Broadway Tap. Tap dance is usually performed as Musical Theatre.

The syllabi ranges in grades suitable for children as young as three years old, up to vocational examinations to prepare students for entry into full time dance training.

We offer Pre-Primary classes all the way up to Advanced, and Adult classes at a variety of different levels.
It is never too late to start Tap dancing!

Tap classes are fun and dynamic, we work on improvisation and free work along side the syllabus. We use lively rhythms and stylised movements whilst maintaining the highest technique.

Pupils are encouraged and worked towards examinations completing each grade with the greatest sense of achievement.

Tap dance is becoming ever increasingly commercial and we pride ourselves in teaching a mixture of English and American techniques and steps, in order to stay true to the tap style.

TAP HERE TO CALL US!

Due to the Coronavirus regrettably our regular classes have momentarily paused until it is safe for them to resume.



In the meantime we hope that you will join us for our Summer Term online classes, Commencing Monday 20th April through to Friday 22nd May 2020.



What’s included:

Access to 15 LIVE classes a week!

Access each week to pre-recorded syllabus steps for each grade to complement live sessions.

Access to all of the classes at any time day and night, by being part of this exclusive group!

Access to try other dance styles in the comfort of your own home, pick up the popular MT & Hip hop classes!



This Summer term online being supported by yourselves allows all of the above to happen and keeps us also on track to build up to our long-awaited show!

At the end of the half term we will hopefully have a better idea of when we will be able to get back to the halls and get started with the show preparations in our normal face to face sessions and this is something that I think we will all look forward to doing and seeing.

We appreciate that many others are feeling the pressure of the madness the world is facing, so If there are any questions, queries etc then please, please do feel that you can contact me to discuss this privately via email Nadine@ba-pa.co.uk

Continue to smile, be thankful that you have each other and forever be the amazing and wonderful supportive BAPA family you are…

Thank you with all my heart

Miss Nadine and the BAPA team
