Students learn traditional tap skills, including steps, combinations and rhythms, as well as the history and theory behind them.
Students are trained in the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) Tap syllabus, which encourages good rhythm, expressive style, and correct technique. The syllabus progresses through Pre-Primary, Primary, Grades 1-6, Tap Medals: Bronze, Silver and Gold, as well as Vocational Graded levels: Intermediate, Advanced 1 and Advanced 2.
Tap improves coordination, balance, and agility, and heightens awareness of rhythm and musicality across all dance forms.
Commencing at the Grade 1 tap level, CSD students must take two dance classes per week and select from ballet or jazz styles. Please see current schedule for class times.
Maximum Class Size: 16 students
