Grade 3 Tap

Tap Dance is an exciting, percussive, and rhythmical dance form. Dancers use their feet to strike the floor, creating a melody with their tap shoes, which have small metal plates on the toe and heel to produce the distinctive sound. This theatrical art form is often seen on screen and stage in musicals, captivating audiences with its dynamic and rhythmic performances.

To study ISTD Grade 3 Tap, students must have completed Grade 1 and Grade 2 Tap. Beginners should start with Grade 1 Tap.

By Grade 3, most children in the class are working diligently to potentially take the ISTD Grade 3 Examination. Our goal is to prepare students to reach a stage where they are ready to take their Grade 3 Tap Exam. We believe that studying for exams is beneficial as it encourages pupils to practice and perfect their steps, working towards a clear goal.

In Grade 3 Tap, children become confident enough to work on more complex steps and their ‘Amalgamation,’ which will be performed individually. This allows them to incorporate simple steps they have previously learned into a performance piece. Tap dance encourages self-discipline and self-expression, helping children develop their listening skills and follow instructions. The ISTD Tap syllabus teaches children to work both individually and in groups, enhancing coordination, good posture, strength, and suppleness. It also provides an opportunity for children to enjoy entertaining music and engage in longer, more complex exercises.

Students will have the opportunity to showcase their skills and progress by performing in our annual show at the Parr Hall. This event is a highlight of the year, allowing students to experience the thrill and joy of performing on stage in front of an audience.
