This page offers specific information on our Rhythm Tap classes for intermediates. More general information on all classes and information on our beginners, improvers, and advanced classes is available here.
Our intermediate classes are suitable for tap students with one to two years of tap experience, or at the teacher's recommendation. Building up on knowledge learnt at beginners and improvers level, students will be introduced to a whole set of new tap amalgamations such as the Alexander, the Bombershay, new versions of steps learnt previously, and many more. Particularly, improvers will also be introduced to the infamous Pullback and variations thereof. Whilst part of each class will focus on the technical side of tap steps, improving every individual student's tap skills, we will also learn fun tap routines to a wide range of music, thus fostering students' ability to remember longer sequences of tap steps. In our online members section, students will be provided with short tutorial videos of all the tap steps and recordings of our choreographies to help them practice at home.
Intermediates 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.
