The ISTD is one of the worlds leading dance examination boards. We are fully trained within the ISTD allowing us to teach and put students through their tap exams.
Tap has evolved as an American dance form, popularised throughout the world, with debate about its origins coming from African dance, Irish dance and/or clog dancing. The dancer uses their feet to strike the floor, beating out different rhythms, with dancers wearing tap shoes which have small metal plates on the toe and heel to give the distinctive sound. Tap dance is a theatrical art form often seen on stage in musicals.
Our syllabus classes range from Primary Grade Tap to Intermediate Level and we run our Mini Movers Dancely programme of Tiny Tappers for our pre and lower school students learning the basic steps in tap.
Examination in the graded syllabus is offered to all students at Studio Unique.
