These two subjects can be studied together in one session or separately. Pupils study N.A.T.D Modern Stage for Examination purposes but are also taught from a variety of other syllabi in order to benefit from a range of styles.


Tap lessons follow the Stage branch of the N.A.T.D, which takes its roots from the American style of tap dancing.

Exams can be taken up to teacher qualification along with Junior and Senior Medals. Pupils are encouraged to participate in many different kinds of shows with ARTS to attain stage and performance experience.
