New for 2015! Rhythm Tap with Avalon – Advanced/Professional class

Step into 2015 in a new Rhythm Tap class for the Intermediate/Advanced level student.

Taught by experienced dancer and tutor Avalon Rathgeb, in this tap dance class you will work on drills and technique with speed and power, across-the-floor techniques including elevated work such as wings, pull backs, tippies, pick ups.


Avalon trained at dance school until the age of 18 when she was awarded a full-time scholarship to train as an all-round dancer at Bird College.

Since graduating in 2009 Avalon has completed two internships for the American Tap Dance Foundation in NYC, was a company member of Grant Swift’s TeAyPe in Melbourne, Australia and has danced with leading Tap dance companies across the UK.

Avalon’s advanced rhythm tap dance class will focus on crawls, emphasising accents and working in different time signatures, building confidence in improvisation and tools to help you jam.

Of her new class Avalon says, “slides are one of my favourite things so you will definitely see those! Most weeks the class will include work on combination within the second half of the session to build stamina and dance quality.”

“We jam for fun at the end of class. Come for a good work out and A LOT of fun!”

Avalon regularly teaches for international Tap Dance festivals and workshops including the Stockholm Tap Festival, Prague City Tap Festival, The Australian Tap Festival, Escola Luthier Dansa and MadTap- Madrid.
