Starting Tap


Tap dancing appeals to all age groups and is a fun style of dance that develops co-ordination and builds strength and flexibility. Young children love the freedom of being encouraged to make that wonderful tapping noise whilst adults enjoy tap dancing as a fun way to exercise and tone up. Tappers & Pointers have shoes to suit all levels from flats for youngsters to Cuban heels for adults and more accomplished tappers. 

  • Velcro Tap Shoe

    This style of tap shoe is ideal for really young starters in tap dancing.  With the exceptionally easy Velcro fastening, the children enjoy the independence of being able to get ready for their tap class without needing an adult to tie their laces.  This is a particular advantage to the dance teacher who is then not required to tie all those laces!  Available in both black, as featured, and also in white, this starter style has been very popular since we introduced it two years ago.
