Ages 7+ | Monday | Ipswich

Starting this September and led by Evie Smith, our new Graded Tap classes run from Primary to Grade 2 and will follow the ISTD syllabus. 

In our Primary classes you will take your first steps towards learning basic tap steps and discipline and work towards taking your first exam, all whilst making new friends and building your confidence and social skills. 

Grade 1 & 2 classes will give you the chance to improve your skills by learning choreography and increase your coordination and balance whilst perfecting more complex steps. 

We’re also pleased to be able to offer Non-Graded lessons for Beginner or Advanced  students, for those of you who wish to develop your technique and learn exciting choreography.

Staying Safe

Keeping everyone safe at the studios is our top priority. For adults and children aged 11 and over, we ask that you wear a face covering on arrival and when you’re moving around the building. There is also a contact-free hand sanitiser at the main entrance, on each landing and in all studios. These should be used on arrival, departure and after handling props.

If you or a close contact or family member tests positive for Covid-19, please email immediately and do not Theatre Academy classes.
