All will have you prancing in no time, but it’s the signature tap lessons that are the pick of the bunch. Pick your level (Beginner, Improvers 1 or 2, or Tap Dance Company if you're a pro already), find a venue near you, sign up for a six- to eight-week course, and you'll be buffalo stepping with the best of them in no time.
Are you in the mood for dancing? You're in the right place: London is awash with studios that'll school you in everything from ballet to Bollywood, via salsa and new jack swing.

Plus, you'll have some great new moves to wow (or terrify) your friends with on your next night out. Here are some of our favourite classes and courses from all ends of the dancing spectrum, from gentle ballet sessions to pulse-racing raves. So whether you’re a terrified newbie or a pirouetting pro, here are the best places to throw some shapes in the city.
