Theatre Tap London was founded by Kirsty Fuller and Harriet Leigh Spence, two Tap Dance Creatives with a passion for tap dance education and advancing tap dance in musical theatre.
With their extensive tap dance training in New York, this duo specialises in training professional performers through rhythm tap technique, improvisation and choreography.
They have a particular interest in iconic tap screen to stage shows and the Hollywood Golden Era.
Additionally, Kirsty has trained with the Radio City Rockettes, and has performed in the West End (42nd Street, Swing/1st cover Anytime Annie). She is currently situated between New York and London.
Harriet is an experienced rhythm tap, jazz and vernacular jazz dance teacher, performer and choreographer. She is currently on faculty at Leeds College of Music and Tap Dance Festival UK.
Kirsty and Harriet continue to have the privilege of training with tap masters in New York and around the world, and enjoy helping students feel confident in their tap abilities and find the love for tap dancing.
