Modern and Tap

Modern and Tap alongside Ballet is one of our most popular disciplines for our dancers at Firefly.

The class is a combination of both subjects rolled into one class.

We start with tap made famous by the rather amazing Gregory Hines, Fred Astaire and Bill “Bojangles” Robinson.  Learning tap steps, technique, rhythm, light and shade using current music as well as the old school favourites.  We follow the I.S.T.D Tap syllabus mixed in with american tap.

Modern class follows tap where the girls and boys learn sequences, leaps, splits, isolations, combinations and amalgamations to popular music.  We also like to mix in lyrical technique to our classes to get two contrasts of styles.  We follow the I.S.T.D modern syllabus but we like to through in Firefly’s distinctive style and add our very own twist on modern dance.
