Tap with Ryan


Saturday 3rd September

12-4pm, Ashfield Presbyterian Church Hall, cnr Knox and Liverpool Rds, Ashfield, $45.

Ryan will make sure we take breaks during the session, but please be sure to bring a water bottle and rest when you need to.
Don't have tap shoes? That's ok - hard soled leather shoes will do the job.

  • 12.00pm-1.00pm Workshop 1: Hello tap dance, nice to meet you and your basic steps and solid technique.
  • 1.15pm-2.15pm Workshop 2: I love you tap dance, show me your solid breaks and give me some homework exercises.
  • 2.30pm-3.30pm Workshop 3: Now that I know all the steps, I will experiment with improvisation and see how tap jams work with my lovely friends.


All three workshops are $45.
Registration is now closed.


Who is Ryan?

Ryan Campbell-Birch moved to Sydney from the UK a few months ago, and we are squeezing him for all his tap learnz before he goes back. Ryan teaches our Tuesday beginner tap dance classes, and leads these ocasional workshop days.

He has extensive teaching, performing, and choreographing experience (which you can read about on his website), and has a strong connection with the roots of tap and jazz dance. He is a legit hoofer.

Ryan is also interested in exploring the relationship between lindy hop, jazz dance, and tap, and is committed to the idea of tap dance as an improvised art form. He introduced himself to Sydney in a tap jam at the Jazz with Ramona weekend, he's entertained us at the Little Big Weekend, and he's recently discovered the Sydney live jazz scene.
