“You can’t buy happiness…but you can buy tap shoes…and that’s kinda the same thing”. The Mildura Ballet and Dance Guild offers a quality tap dance programme, with a structured curriculum for all ages. The art of tap dancing crosses over into the ability to be musical. A tap dancer not only has to look good but also sound amazing! Having taught the Tapatak Oz syllabus for over 10 years, students will be given the foundations and skills to ultimately tap at a professional level. Tap is a joyous form of dance, and not only provides students with technique, but many cognitive skills which will assist them in their day to day learning. Students at the Mildura Ballet and Dance Guild have the opportunity to perform tap exams each year, and often have performance opportunities in the wider community. The MBDG is widely regarded and respected for it’s quality programme with many regular professionals visiting Mildura for workshops and training.
