Wendy Bates School of Dancing


The NATD's exciting Stage Branch Tap syllabus is created for all ages to embrace exercise, fitness and fun through intricate rhythms and up-beat music.

Our Graded classes commence with Class Examination from the age of 4, which introduces and develops rhythmical skills, coordination, spatial awareness, confidence and team building skills. Students can then progress through the Grades becoming more skilful and enjoying the intricate rhythms. Following Grades 1 to 5, Intermediate Foundation to Advanced 2 encourage Vocational students, who wish to become teachers or professional dancers, to further their technical knowledge and understanding of the Tap genre.

Examinations offer a great opportunity for students to achieve qualifications and awards whilst advancing their skills in Tap.

Children with special needs are encouraged to participate in our classes and examinations.

We offer Adult Tap classes, these classes are both fun and informal whilst still learning the rhythmical techniques of Tap dance. Suitable for all abilities. Ages 18+.
