OUR CLASSES

We offer multiple classes for adults at five different levels each week. Each class caters for the different levels of experience, but in general all classes build up on knowledge learnt at lower skill levels, introducing new tap amalgamations, more advanced versions of steps learnt previously, and much more. Whilst part of each class focusses on the technical side of tap steps, improving every individual student's tap skills, we also learn fun tap routines to a wide range of music, thus fostering our students' ability to remember longer sequences of tap steps. The different classes are scheduled as follows:

BEGINNERS 1

  • WHEN: Wednesdays, 8.15-9.15pm; 

  • WHO: for complete beginners or returners;

  • As a complete beginner, you will first need to attend an induction workshop in order to learn the very basics of tap before joining this class.

AVAILABILITY & INDUCTION WORKSHOPS

Students are welcome to join our classes at any point during the year. It might be that the class is halfway through learning a choreography, but new students will soon catch up with everybody. Due to limited availability of spaces, new students are asked to get in touch with us in advance to briefly double check whether there are any empty spaces, but generally students are welcome to join at any time.

 

If you are a complete beginner then you will need to join one of our induction workshops, where you'll be introduced to the very basics of tap in order to prepare you for your first regular class at Beginners 1 level. Get in touch with us in order to check when the next induction workshop will be held. 

TAP SHOES

Students are required to bring along their own tap shoes. For information on where to buy tap shoes and which make of shoe we recommend, see the answers in our FAQs section.

WEEKEND WORKSHOPS

Rhythm Tap Cardiff also offers a few weekend workshops throughout the year. Depending on the workshop, students will learn a whole choreography to a special piece of music, will learn an a cappella routine, or will be introduced to body percussion. Dates for any workshops will be announced here on our website and on social media. Keep your eyes peeled for any future updates!
