Let’s get Tappy! At GLM, we proudly teach the Ballet Australasia Limited (BAL) Tap syllabi, providing up to date trends with sound tap technique in carefully graded classes.
Part dance, part music, tap dancers create their own sound with simple and complex rhythms, working with what is effectively a percussive instrument strapped to their feet! Tap is one of our favourite styles at GLM, as a super fun physical AND mental workout. With fun exercises and age-appropriate progressions, we have something for everyone. Tap is very versatile, from classic musical theatre styles through to funky, modern takes, there’s so much freedom and expression for dancers. Not requiring the same kicks and leaps of other dance styles, Tap can also be an especially fun and accessible challenge no matter your experience or fitness level, whether you’re 8 or 80! So pop on The Greatest Showman and La La Land and get those dancing feet excited for a tap class! Browse our list of classes - all of which welcome dancers of all experience levels, and book your FREE TRIAL in a few clicks today!
