Tap Dancers in action
The recent six week introduction to tap dancing for beginners was a great success and several of that class have taken the brave step to join the regular Thursday class. However, not all were able to do so.
Due to the enthusiasm expressed by the new tappers, we have started a regular beginners’ class. We have secured the services of a great teacher and the Women’s Institute has been made available to us once again.
If you would like to join the Tap Dancing – Beginners Group – new members welcome – please ring the coordinator, Irene on: 01695 578263. If she cannot answer your call, please leave a message and she will get back to you.
Beginners’ Tap-dancing Class 2019
Six week course: Wednesday 9 January – Wednesday 13 February – 10.30-11.30 (1 hour)
This class is for anyone who fancies learning to tap-dance and is suitable for those who have had no tap-dancing experience. It will deliver the basic tap-dance steps at a pace which will suit the individual.
It will be held at Aughton Women’s Institute (newly refurbished) on Town Green Lane. You do not need tap shoes but you do need some comfortable flexible-soled shoes (not trainers).
If you want to speak to the Coordinator, please ring Irene (01695 578263) and if any ex-tappers wish to donate their unwanted tap shoes, then please contact Irene and she will arrange to collect them. (Irene is also the new Coordinator of the U3A Tap Dancing Group,)
