Beginner Tap

Tap is an energetic form of dance that is fun for all ages as it builds aerobic fitness & muscle control. It is characterised by using the sound of your tap shoes hitting the floor as a percussive instrument like drums to create rhythmic patterns and timely beats to the music. Class begins with a warm-up to stretch the muscles of the legs and feet, basic steps both stationary and travelling and short combinations to create different sounds and rhythms.

A key ingredient of tap is balance, so it’s great for those looking to improve their posture. It is also a great workout for your mind as it is known to help ward off Alzheimer’s & Dementia so why not give it a go! What have you got to lose?

Beginner Lyrical

Lyrical is a style of Jazz that has been fused with Ballet and encourages artistic expression and emotional content while building grace and fluidity. Lyrical is an expressive style of dance that allows the dancer to interpret and express the emotions, lyrics and story associated with a piece of music. The movement is more internal, showing the dancer’s strength, control, and diverse quality of movements.

Lyrical jazz class is suitable for beginner dancers and begins with a movement-based warm up, floor work, choreography and concludes with stretching and a cool down.

This lyrical class will give you a great workout with the combination of weight transfers, sinking into your legs and floor work. You will finish the class feeling euphoric!
