The lovely Miss Petra is not currently running classes due to the Lockdown (And two little people at home!). However, Head Office have set up ONLINE Tappy Toes classes for you to enjoy! We have set up live streaming, so that you and your little one can still experience the JOY of dancing in the comfort of your own home! During this strange period of our lives, Tappy Toes will NOT stop dancing! So if you are self isolating or just staying in, you won't be bored.

Join us live online for our toddler dance classes via head office, as Miss Petra is unable to offer these classes at the moment, or head over to our sister company Rise Studios for our fantastic LIVE Baby Ballet dance classes.

Petra Durkan trained at one of the top ballet schools in Slovakia – 'ballet conservatory'. Graduating in 2002 with distinctions in classical ballet, modern and folklore dance. She lived and worked in the UK for 10 years in various dance schools, before moving to Dublin, where she runs her own Tappy Toes baby and toddler dance classes in Howth.

She opened her Dance School 'Joy Dance Studios' in 2015, where her mini Tappy Toes dancers can progress on to syllabus classes once they get a little bit older.

Petra is qualified with the ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) in modern theatre and classical ballet. She highly enjoys teaching children of all ages (but especially toddlers!)  and particularly loves watching her little Tappy Toe-ers develop their confidence and ability each week.
