Course content

  • Each lesson begins with a warm-up, flexing the muscles, limbering ankle and knee joints and stimulating breathing, and ends with a cool-down.
  • Tap steps, combinations and simple rhythms are taught and revised at the start of each lesson.
  • A tap routine is taught and practised, with steps added each week until the routine is complete.
  • The routine is practised each lesson and perfected before a new routine is commenced.
  • One complex routine or two simple routines will be completed over the six weeks of the course.

Important information

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing.

Tap shoes are required. These may be purchased at Bloch, 117 York Street, Sydney or online. If purchasing online, measure your foot, as people commonly take a size larger in tap shoes than in dress shoes. If you do not have tap shoes yet, please wear leather-soled shoes to the first lesson.

Health and safety

Please arrive in time for the start of each class, or the tutor may refuse to admit you into the session. Most active classes start with an OH&S briefing and/or warm-up. To miss this may create a hazard to you and could exclude you from participation for the session.

What others have said about this course

'It was great fun and most of the participants had no experience so I fitted right in.'

'Having no previous dance experience at all, I found some parts challenging. The classes are quite fast-paced but if you have time to practice between classes there shouldn’t be a problem. I hugely enjoyed this class and have enrolled to do it again!'

'A great big space, lovely wood floor, unique evocative atmosphere. I learnt a lot in a fun and supportive environment… washed/danced all my cares away! Great teacher – patient, lovely, skilled!'

'All students were accommodated – both in their personality quirks and their tap-dancing skill levels.'

Course testimonials:

  • said: "Prue is a wonderful teacher who makes everyone feel included and capable no matter their pace of learning. Its so satisfying to learn such a unique form of dance and is such a challenge for the brain and body!"

  • said: "5 stars"

  • said: The tutor was lovely and I really liked her but I felt really out of my depth. I would have liked to stay on simple exercises before getting on to a sequence. I've never tapped before and I found the class too hard. It wasn't really a beginner class because there was so many experienced dancers there who already knew all the moves and just wanted to go fast. I felt like I couldn't keep up so I stopped going after the 2nd week.

  • said: Really fun class for all levels, Prue was an excellent dance teacher, really accommodating and willing to help everyone no matter their competence. I'm very keen to sign up again next term.

  • said: It was a lot of fun and a good workout without feeling like one. I plan on coming back next term!
