Let your feet do the talking. Tap is an art form where elaborate rhythms are created and joyful music is made. Dancers are trained in various styles including Swing, Classic and Street Tap. So get ready for some fun-filled energy while you learn to syncopate and hoof with the best. The Academy offers classes from the Pre-School to Pre-Professional levels, including a "Boys Only" program, a full adult program, and one of the largest co-ed programs in the Lower Mainland. Students and their Instructor continue to travel semi-annually to Tap Festivals held in key cities throughout North America and Hawaii, to train with world famous and legendary Tap Masters and perform to international audiences.

Graduates from these programs have gone on to Professional Careers performing in On-Broadway and Off-Broadway Musicals, Charlottetown Festival and most recently Tapestry Tap Company- North America's only full-time tap company. Specialized teachers who have danced professionally and continue to train, pass on their expertise daily to provide these unique results.
