Tap is one of the most iconic forms of dance. From the back streets of New Orleans to the stars of the silver screen, Tap Dance is a timeless treat to the senses - percussive and expressive in equal measure. On our Tap Dance Classes and Lessons, you will learn all of the essential tap rhythms and steps.

If you love the idea of tapping out rhythms and improving your timing, fitness and flexibility, then sign up to one of our adult Tap Classes today.

All our Tap, classes follow the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) Syllabi.

Established in 1904, the ISTD is the largest and one of the most influential dance organisations and leading examination boards in the world.

Grade Syllabus:

We offer the graded syllabus in tap, beginning at Primary level, and continuing through Grades 1-6 which are now accredited by the QCA. 

Vocational Syllabus:

All levels of the Vocational grades are accredited by the QCA for all three syllabi, and form a cohesive continuation from the Grades.


ISTD examinations are held annually, although not compulsory. These examinations, conducted by the country’s most respected authority in the field, are important in cultivating a sense of achievement amongst the children and students, offering a great reward as they progress through the grades. The examination success rate has, and still is exceptionally high at Hitchin School of Dance. Some 95% of our pupils have gained distinctions and merit grades from ISTD
