Tap Dancing Class - April/May Term

£60 for full course - other options available

New Term Begins Tuesday 18th April 2023 at 7.30pm

Natalie from Penn and Doyle Dance Academy is back with another 6-week tapdance course for fast beginners/intermediates - Tuesdays at 7.30pm from 18th April till 23rd May. 

A small, friendly and welcoming class. We teach a variety of techniques and moves both low impact and higher impact, with modifications available. Challenging and fun routines to musical theatre tunes.

  • £60 for the full 6-week course.
  • To make our classes as accessible as possible, we also offer a drop-in option, where you buy 3 classes at a slightly higher rate per class, and you can attend any 3 classes during the 6-week term: Cost: £35.

Whichever option you choose (full-course or drop-ins), a deposit of £10 is payable by bank transfer or PayPal by 11th April to secure your space. Then the remainder of £50 can be paid on the first class or in 2 installments of £25 (on 18th April and 9th May). Or if you are opting for the drop-in sessions, your £25 remainder must be paid by 18th April at the latest.

We can only run the class if we have a minimum number of people. The maximum size will be 8 students, to keep the class's unique character.

Please email natalie@frontroomtheatre.co.uk to reserve a space and get bank details. Or email and pay via paypal: PayPal.me/frontroomtheatre
Limited space, so please let us know asap if you'd like to join! 

About Natalie...

Natalie's techniques come from her training at Tamworth Academy of Dance, and also with Derek Hartley at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts. She has also attended classes at Danceworks with Richard Holland and with the Mark Morris Dance Group in New York, and she currently attends professional classes in Reading. Her routines are inspired by the lyrics of the music chosen and they mix in other genres, combining old-style hoofing with more contemporary rhythmic-based tap. Being also a trained actor, Natalie encourages you to tell a story with every dance, without compromising your technical skills. She makes the class challenging and enjoyable, with adaptations always available to accommodate injuries or difficulties with any movements. The Rising Sun Arts Centre has a beautiful wooden floor, which is ideal to tap on. Natalie is passionate about the skills she shares and the power of dance to improve physical and mental wellbeing. For your first class, no need to worry if you don't have tap shoes. Just come along with suitably close-fitting shoes (not trainers) which you can move in and you don't mind knocking about in, and enjoy!
