Classes use a range of dance styles, including street, jazz and contemporary to music from the charts, films and musicals. We do not follow a syllabus, are very relaxed and go with the flow depending on what participants are interested in! In the children's session we try and embed a value in our dance work each term such as teamwork, showing love and being unique, while in the adult class we have been working on building balance and stamina. We added the adult class because everyone should get the opportunity to bust some moves - even Brenda, our 86 year old dancer!! It is a mix of fitness and dance with seated options available for those with less mobility. We do not take the sessions too seriously and people are welcome to do as much or as little as they feel comfortable.
Each class costs £1 per dancer and goes directly to our Sister, Lily, in India who has opened a school and an orphanage. The money we gather from having fun and dancing together feeds the children and provides equipment they need for school.
TAPfit is the world's first dance workout where you don't just dance TO the beat, you MAKE the beat! Inspired by the energising, infectious and sweat-dripping fun of STOMP, unleash your inner dancer and join in the fun. Victoria, the licensed instructor, selects the set list from the instructor portal and adapts to what dancers are enjoying most! Great for all abilities but especially for those who want to give tap dance a go in a super informal way! We provide special patented Feetbeats which just slip on over normal trainers so no need to worry about purchasing equipment.
REMEMBER - Unlike the other JAM classes on a Thursday where you can just pop along, you MUST book on each week for a TAPfit class as places are limited due to the provision of Feetbeats. Each class will cost £5.
