Chart sounds, Retro and the Big Band Classics combine to make an interesting mix of influences for classes and performances from Burlesque to Bollywood, Hip Hop to Hairspray never a dull moment for music and dance fans of all ages.

Children & Teenagers

Parent Friendly

With pay as you go class payments for flexibility and classes running fifty weeks of the year and not just term time - family commitments and events sometimes make it necessary to miss classes, paying by the class or the week eases this situation. Most children are self conscious at some stage and comfortable clothing is paramount , the non expensive uniform of T shirt, sweatshirt and leggings / trousers are for ease and comfort.

Our annual Certificate Presentation for families and performers to enjoy is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the achievements of each member of The Tappers in a friendly non competitive manner. It’s a great chance for the dancers to demonstrate the skills they have learnt. There are no shortages of performances if the stage is where your child likes to be. Sell out shows at the Anvil, Haymarket, QMC, as well as various public events around town have been enjoyed by dancers who love the chance to perform. London’s West End is a dream just around the corner!

Beginners Class

Complete beginner or a little experienced? - it’s never too late to start dancing. As an adult Dance Co. we have a variety of dancers from all walks of life and all ages, with one thing in common …a love of music and dancing.

Back to Tap...

Back to Tap classes are run regularly throughout the year for those who have taken a break and want to dust off those shoes or have had an injury and need to take it steady.

Regular Classes

Having danced before or progressed from a beginner the regular classes have a cross section of young and mature adults, the pace is up beat and and if asked for the recipe for this class, it has to be health, fitness, friends and great fun.

Mums The Word...

Dancing is a fabulous way of building stamina and enjoying exercise through pregnancy. Many dancers have benefited from safe and well managed classes. Tracey herself danced into labour both times with her children.
