Tap at home!
A tap session for participants who enjoy being in a relaxed environment with participants of mixed ability.
What you need: Wear comfy clothes and bring plenty of water. Tap shoes are not a necessity and soft shoes are fine, but if you do wish to use tap shoes, it is advised that you lay a board on the floor to avoid scratching the surface. See also class access information.
