All of our classes at Shaftesbury Arts Centre are non-syllabus based and work well as stand-alone classes or alongside any syllabus classes already being attended. Within these classes, students will learn a variety of rhythms and how to apply those to the sounds they make with their feet and hands. As they develop they will learn how to develop into a percussionist creating their own music with their feet.

Within each lesson, students learn a variety of tap techniques and develop them into exercises, drills and combinations over each term. Not only are these classes great fun, but they also work on developing coordination, posture and stance, help with brain training and muscle memory. A wonderful place to meet new people and make new friends.

Erica is an ISTD-registered member with a Level 4 Diploma in Dance Education (DDE), has dance teachers’ insurance with G Gallagher and is DBS checked.

Classes can be joined on a pay-as-you-go basis or by monthly standing order. For further details about the classes, please either visit our website at or email Erica at
