Tap dance is one of the most enjoyable and rhythmic forms of recreational dance. Tap is excellent for developing a sense of rhythm and musicality. Nopt to mention, children have great fun making different sounds with their feet!

At NLPAC, we offer ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) exam classes. Exam classes follow an acredited syllabus, enabling students to work towards a graded examination if they wish.

We also provide Vocational Intermediate and ISTD DDE teacher training. The ISTD is an awarding organisation regulated by Ofqual. Examinations from Grade 1 and above are on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and from Grade 6 students receive UCAS points.

Exams are held at our studios in the Summer term. To be considered for ISTD exams from Grade 1 and above, students may be required to attend extra coaching classes in the term prior to the exams.

If you’re unsure which grade you should pick, once a trial class has been taken, the teacher will suggest the best possible class for the student.

Non-Syllabus Tap is also offered in our Tiny Toes pre-school class and as part of our Boys Performance School.
