BEGINNER TAP SHOES – TAP YOUR WORRIES AWAY
If you don’t know much about tap it’s an easy dance style to dismiss. On the Emerald Isle, tap doesn’t hold the prestige of ballet, nor the universality of Irish dancing. Tap is a dance style largely associated, in general, with kid’s stage schools. As such, it might surprise you to discover that tap dancing isn’t just Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly in those black and white musicals any more. Tap dancing has evolved with the times and the modern face of tap dance is edgy and athletic.

Veganuary is the world’s largest vegan movement, inspiring people to try veganism for 31 days. Veganuary challenges us to reduce our negative impact on the planet by cutting out the use of animal-based products.

Dance World is moving towards a more sustainable future and here are a few pointers for how you can reduce waste and adapt Veganuary into your everyday routine as a dancer.
