Tap & Modern

What is Tap?

Tap has evolved as an American dance form, popularised throughout the world, with debate about its origins coming from African dance, Irish dance and/or clog dancing.

The dancer uses their feet to strike the floor, beating out different rhythms, with dancers wearing tap shoes which have small metal plates on the toe and heel to give the distinctive sound. Tap dance is a theatrical art form often seen on stage in musicals

What is Modern?

Modern Dance Theatre is a rhythmic dance style which originated in America before travelling to the rest of the world.

It is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities.

The style uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps and turns which all need strength and flexibility. This is a highly energetic dance style

Tap & Modern follows the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) syllabi and is combined in the following levels:

Tap & Modern introduces a range of skills including rhythm and musicality, performance skills, flexibility and core strength through these two fun and exciting disciplines.

Tap & Modern Level I is available to our youngest pupils; children aged 3-5 years of age

Tap & Modern II builds on the foundations learnt at the entry level to develop a more secure sense of rhythm, increased precision of footwork & core strength and greater versatility in using different styles.

Tap & Modern level II is available to children aged         6-8 years of age

Tap & Modern III offers an opportunity to increase skill and artistry in both disciplines.  

Tap & Modern III is open to children aged 9-12 years of age
