Tap/Rhythm & Contemporary Modern
Tap/Rhythm & Modern Dance classes for children from age 4 years.
Contemporary Modern Dance Classes
Beginners - Advanced
Contemporary Modern Theatre dance is a rhythmic dance style which originated in America before travelling to the rest of the world. It is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities. The style uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps, and is a highly energetic dance style.
Modern Dance also has the ability to adapt, develop and evolve with the changing fashion in dance. It is freer than ballet and based on natural movement. The technique learnt in Modern promotes strength and flexibility while developing the skill and passion of performance. Through a carefully planned and well-tried examination syllabus, young people are trained to become disciplined and versatile dancers.
At Showshack we offer Contemporary Modern Dance classes to children from age 4 years.
ISTD Modern examinations are recognised by the Government’s accredited Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) providing points equivalent to GCSEs, A Levels and UCAS points.
Tap/Rhythm Dance Classes
Beginners - Grade 6
Tap has evolved as an American dance form, popularised throughout the world, with its origins coming from African dance, Irish dance and clog dancing. The dancer uses their feet to strike the floor, beating out different rhythms, with dancers wearing tap shoes which have small metal plates on the toe and heel to give the distinctive sound. Tap dance is a theatrical art form often seen on stage in musicals.
Tap Dance is an essential skill for the professional dancer, it is also one of the most enjoyable and rhythmic forms of recreational dance. The ISTD provides extensive syllabi for graded examinations from children’s grades through to professional teaching qualifications.
