Course description

Dance classes – tap dance lessons for beginners in Sydney.

If you’ve never tapped and want to learn, or if it has been a while since you’ve had your shoes on, this is the class for you. Starting from the very basics, you’ll be tap dancing at least one routine by the end of the six-week course.

Tap is great for timing, co-ordination and fitness. Grab your shoes, join in and make some noise! Explore your inner tap dancer with the help of our teachers in this course.

Ideal for…

Absolute beginners and those who want to refresh their skills.

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.

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.'

Avoid disappointment. Enrol early.

Course testimonials:

  • Rachel said: "5 stars"

  • Frances said: Pru is an excellent teacher - she is encouraging and is able to share her knowledge about all things, not just tap. I really appreciated that she had an understanding of the physiology of tap, not just the technical steps. 100% would recommend! The only thing that would be helpful is if there were mirrors in the hall to be able to see what you are doing.

  • Kay said: Good for a real beginners, I felt comfortable to join the class.
