A child-friendly, all-ages dance participation event with live music, in Nottingham City Centre on Saturday evening, free for under-14s. Dance, or watch and listen.
A Tap Jam is a place for tap dancers to improvise with musicians and other tap dancers. Everyone is welcome whether to take part or simply watch and enjoy.
This isn’t a home ed event as such. It’s child-friendly, informal and not super expensive. Some home edders have been going to other similar events run by Jess, and will probably be going to this too.
- Both adults and children can take part in the dancing if they want to – or just enjoy listening to live jazz and watching the dancers!
- The short improvisation session at the beginning is suitable for complete beginners.
- It’s free to borrow tap shoes.
- Under-14s go free. Adults £5 before 8pm, or free for the last hour.
- You don’t have to book, just turn up.
There will be a group improvisation workshop before the main jam starts for you to try improvising in a low key environment and learn some easy approaches to get you started.
Venue is City Arts, 11-13 Hockley, NG1 1FH.
It’s on the east of Nottingham city centre, just round the corner from the north end of the skating rink building, about a third of a mile from the old market square.
It has flat access and a wheelchair-accessible toilet.
There’s a sort of café kitchen area where snacks and drinks are usually available for donations.
