Tap Dancing Classes - Spring Term

With Penn & Doyle Dance Academy in Association with Front Room Theatre

Tuesdays at 7:30pm | 21 Feb - 28 Mar

Fast Beginners' class: £60 for 6 weeks (£10 per session) 7.30 till 8.30pm at the Rising Sun Arts Centre in Reading. 

Learn to dance with Natalie, who trained at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in acting and musical theatre, and beforehand trained in the American Association of Dance syllabus, at Tamworth Academy.  She has also learned with various teachers, attending classes at Danceworks, Dance Attic, The Place (contemporary), Reside Dance (contemporary), Pineapple Studios and Mark Morris (Tap).  She has a unique blend of experience as a professional dancer, actor, singer and linguist and has trained in classes taught by numerous different associations, so her knowledge is broad of both tap moves and steps, and their various names!

The American Association tap techniques were brought over to the UK by the likes of Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly. There is a focus on theory which enables you to be a better dancer and understand the reasons behind some of the preparations and barre work we do as dancers.

Our teacher Natalie will share with you her energy and love of tap-dance! Come along to a session to try it out. No need to purchase tap shoes to begin with.

A term is payable in advance. If it is your first time, come along and pay for one class, and if you like it, sign up for the remainder of the term. 

If there is enough interest, we will run a class for all levels on Tuesday 7th February for those wanting to try it out before the start of the next term on 21st February.

Please contact Natalie for more information.
