Tappy Toes toddler dance classes...

Tappy Toes was created to introduce children and babies, as young as 6 months, to the world of music and dance. It was born from a passion to get the whole world dancing. It is such a fantastic 'feel-good' activity. The benefits of dance are endless. Dance is now being 'prescribed' as a treatment in some cases of depression!

Introducing your little one to dance at this early age could spark a real love for the art, which will last a lifetime! Keeping your child active is one of the most important things you can do for their physical health and mental well-being and I promise, you'll enjoy our dance classes too!

Claire trained at Laine Theatre Arts, Epsom, Surrey, on a three year musical theatre course. She gained Distinctions in Ballet, Modern and Tap ISTD Teaching Associates, and an Anatomy Diploma, and has been teaching dance since she was 16 years old.

A professional dancer from 1998- 2010, she performed with major pop artists including Destiny’s Child, KT Tunstal and Catherine Jenkins. In west end venues, the Royal Albert Hall and the London Palladium, and in countless hair and fashion shows for companies including Marks and Spencer, Levis, Clarks, Wella and L’Oreal. She appeared on Top of the Pop’s, MTV, the Brit Awards, a series for ITV1, and a cinema and TV campaign for Lynx.

She is now an accomplished choreographer having worked on adverts for the Olympics 2012, Moshi Monsters and Lumi Jewellery, and on TV shows including CBeebies, Nuzzle and Scratch, ITV1s Wedding Dances and a Teachers TV series.

With over 15 years of teaching experience behind her, Claire created Tappy Toes baby and toddler dance classes in order to develop imagination, build confidence, improve coordination and inspire creativity in your youngsters, and to provide a fun but controlled environment for parent/carer and toddler to bond. During the Cornavirus pandemic, Claire decided to take all Tappy Toes classes live online, so that every could experience the magic of DANCE even during social distancing and isolation. 

Claire also runs Rise Studios, providing dance and drama classes to all ages in Rickmansworth and Watford, Hertfordshire, these classes are also now available live online.

I bet some of you Mummies can relate to this... 😆This is Mummy. Mummy is looking forward to another week of homeschooling like a hole in the head.

Mummy is finding in near on impossible to do her full time job in the 10 minute bursts between dealing with requests like ‘Can you cut this out?’, ‘Where’s the glue stick gone?’, ‘How do you spell dog!’, ‘Is it snack time yet?’ and ‘THE BATTERY HAS RUN OUT AGAIN CAN YOU GET THE CHARGER!’

Mummy has printed out approximately four trees worth of activity sheets, none of which the children are able to complete by them fucking selves.

Mummy is aware of all the incredible free YouTube content on offer (oh dear god, is she aware) but she is so unfit she has only just recovered the ability to sit down without going ‘Argh, you bastard!’ after doing two days worth of primary school P.E. lessons. FYI Joe - you nearly killed Mummy off!

Mummy is confused as to how anyone offering 'simple crafting for kids' can think it is even vaguely plausible that a six year old could make a 3D model of the Eiffel Tower out of yoghurt pots, unaided.

Mummy is under a lot of pressure to meet deadlines, she has started to wonder if her boss would accept the 3D model of the Eiffel Tower made out of yoghurt pots in place of the Q4 client report?!

Mummy is unsure if she will ever recover professionally, from having to leave a conference call to wipe her child’s arse.

But above all of this, Mummy is totally in awe of teachers everywhere, who deserve to be given a one million pound pay rise, free gin for life, a holiday home in the Maldives and a flying unicorn.
