Find classes in your area!

Angelina Jandolo Dance school teaches tap classes for children in London, with weekly term-time lessons across venues in the South East of the city, including Greenwich, Blackheath and Eltham. Both beginner and intermediate children’s lessons are currently available to book.

Our tap teachers have all trained professionally in internationally-renowned dance schools and conservatoires, going on to perform at national and international levels. Your children will be welcome no matter how new they are to tap dancing, and will progress at a steady pace through IDTA-syllabus exams (although there is not obligation to take them – it’s up to you and your kids!)

Classes are built to help students progress, but are challenging too: both complete beginners and those with existing experience will learn and grow as tap dancers while learning to dance in a group while making new friends. If you think your child would enjoy tap, why not start with a single lesson and see how it goes?

Use the location links further down the page to find the timetables for children’s tap classes in Greenwich, Blackheath, Eltham & Dulwich. These classes include:

Preparatory tap (from 5 years old): A 15-minute add-on class taking place after primary ballet lessons in every one of our locations, this 15min class is the perfect little introduction to tap dancing.

Primary tap (from 6 years old): A 45-minute class in which students can deepen their understanding of the technique.

Grade 1: A 55-minute class for students moving up from the primary level, training in the IDTA syllabus.

Find the right tap class for your kids!

Currently, Angelina Jandolo Dance teachers children tap in Greenwich, Dulwich, Eltham, Blackheath, Shoreditch and Crystal Palace. We have found bright, airy, clean & safe venues to hold weekly classes throughout term time, and our teachers have all taught children previously at an exam level – each will get the best out of your children both in terms of enthusiasm and technique.

Tap with exams, or without

Angelina Jandolo Dance does not make exams mandatory, but we do encourage parents to enter their children into IDTA exam sessions if they feel their child will enjoy the experience. The exam syllabus is designed to create a gradual growth in confidence and technique simultaneously, and the results certainly show: the school has never seen a child fail any dance exam since we started five years ago.

children’s tap FAQs

How will I be paying?

We are offering a trial class billed as a one-off payment of a single class. After the trial class, all fees are paid per half term.

For example, if you would like to try adult beginner ballet:

The trial class would be a single payment of £8.50. Then, the five weeks left in the half term would be billed for £42.50.

You can pay cash for your trial directly to the dance teacher or via bank transfer at least 24 hours before your class. Please use this account:

Account number: 73767700

We also allow you to make up any missed classes on a different day of the week during the same half term.

How old does my child have to be to start dancing?

We generally teach children from the age of five, which is when they can begin to learn the IDTA syllabus.

For younger children, we recommend the Babyballet franchise in Greenwich and Blackheath, where Angelina, Emily and Nicky have all previously taught, or still currently do!

Do tap exams count towards UCAS points?

Some of the graded exams do count towards points, and more information can be found on the IDTA website and UCAS website..

Can my child take more than one dance lesson per week?

Absolutely. Whilst many students enjoy one lesson a week, we strongly encourage any students who wish to spend more time learning with our teachers.

Will my child need any specific clothing or equipment?

We completely understand that you might wish to take a few weeks before deciding to buy a full kit. However, if after a term your child decides to carry on, we would like to stress the importance of acquiring and wearing the uniform (which we have kept as affordable as possible).
As well as being designed to help the teacher see and correct the posture if needed, it will make your child feel part of a team and create a professional and disciplined environment. Uniform is also mandatory for any IDTA exam taken with the school, as well, of course, as tap shoes.

Can my child take private lessons?

A number of our students take private lessons regularly or on an had hoc basis, to deepen the technique taught in class.

Will my child participate in shows?

We hold shows regularly (and additionally run workshops and summer schools) which children can take part in. Some of these events are part of the school term schedule, others are separate to the main term and require sign-up.

Should my child take tap exams?

Exams are a good way to work towards a goal and a great motivational tool, but each child is different. If you think your child would not enjoy taking an exam, we are happy to simply move the child up a level when their teacher thinks that they are ready to progress.
