Tap dancing is one of the most popular and stylish dance forms of all time. Both Open Tap and working on AIDT Exam technique are a fun way to develope coordination, rhythm, musicality and concentration in an encouraging atmosphere. All classes include year end performances. AIDT Tap examinations take place in June.
The A.I.D.T. is an examining body and non-profit Association, whose aim is to promote the teaching and
standard of Modern Dance, Tap Dance and Urban Hip Hop dancing.
A comprehensive syllabus in all sections enables students from the age of 5 years onwards; to learn the
correct technique, develop discipline and musicality, while enjoying the dancing experience.
Careful attention is given to anatomy, as used in dance, to avoid injury through incorrect use of the body.
The General Training Program (G) will include a year-end performance.
The Intensive Training Program (ITP) will include festivals/competitions and year-end performances.
