Tap Dance Classes

Tap dance classes in Hertfordshire from GSD

Graham School of Dance runs Tap dance classes for children of all ages. Tap dancing helps develop a sense of rhythm and timing which benefits all types of dance, and is fun to learn!

Tap dancing also helps increase flexibility and co-ordination, as well as strength in the legs and feet increased flexibility in the hips, knees and ankles. Tap dancers also develop both mental and muscle memory to become proficient at tapping. All our Tap Dance pupils learn Ballet each week too, as the foundation for their Tap work. 

Adult Tap classes are also popular - these are held Monday evenings for Beginner and Intermediate levels - please contact us for details!

Located in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire, our dance studios are ideally located for students across Hertfordshire and Essex. If you live in or near the following locations, then Graham School of Dance is ideal for you: Bishop’s Stortford, Saffron Walden, Hertford, Welwyn Garden City, Welwyn, Stansted, Harlow, Elsenham, Sawbridgeworth, Ware, Takeley, Puckeridge, Braintree, Buntingford and the Hadham’s.

Please contact us for more details of our classes!

Update Monday 5th March: ALL CLASSES ARE ON!

All classes resume as normal from today onwards, at all venues. Thank you for your support last week where of course conditions were very much out of our control, and we hope you/your children enjoyed the snow! Please note that whenever seriously bad weather is forecast, messages will always be left on our Facebook page: Graham School of Dance & Theatre Arts, and also on this website.

CLASSES SATURDAY 3rd MARCH: Update Fri 2nd March. 8.30pm:

We have decided to cancel classes for tomorrow Saturday 3rd March, due to the potential aftermath of the recent adverse weather. As ever, the welfare of our staff, pupils and parents is of paramount importance, and thus although snow is not forecast, travel is likely to be hazardous with icy roads etc, and so we have taken this decision in the best interests of everyone. Classes/rehearsals will resume Sunday 4th March unless a significant deterioration of weather conditions ensues, in which case an update will be posted here and on our Facebook page.
