One of the main questions we usually receive when signing up for Tap On is... And how do I know which level to sign up for? Below is a series of descriptions and tips on each level, to help you choose which level best suits you.  

  • Basic: Designed for those who have been dancing for about a year. If you know the basic steps, such as shuffle, flap, ball-changes, cramp rolls, etc. but are still learning and acquiring basic principles, this is the level for you.

  • Intermediate: If you have been dancing for between 2 and 4 years. You have the main steps well established and you can execute different variations in different tempos. You have a basic understanding of music and how to use it in your dancing, you know the phrasing, you understand time signatures, what a time step is and the different styles of music. Your technique and fundamentals allow you to easily learn new material and techniques. Improvisation is familiar territory for you and you feel comfortable in it. You are able to count beats while dancing as something you have already tried, understand and know.

  • Advanced: For those who have been dancing for 5 years or more, professionals, etc. This level is where you seek to perfect everything you already know. You master the steps and technique as well as the spoken language, the same with the improvisation that emerges fluently in any tempo and musical style. Your goal is more focused on expression than on technique, which you already have fully integrated, on polishing nuances. You're looking for how to get more polish out of your tap, your whole repertoire of steps, combinations and tricks and to be able to reach the level of the stars.
It is always a difficult task for teachers to adjust the level of classes when the group is large and diverse. Their priority is to make sure that everyone can learn, that no one is left behind, and that no one is too bored. The main drawback usually appears when one or two people lower the general level of the group. In that case the teacher chooses to maintain the average level and if someone feels that it does not reach, always have the possibility of changing to another class of a lower level.

Changes of level can be made on the first day of the festival and as long as there are places available in the groups.
Every Year, Tap On Mallorca offers several Scholarships (Usually Two: One for Advanced and other for Intermediate), that correspond to a "FULL FESTIVAL PACK" (All Courses, Parties and Performances for FREE) for the next edition of Tap On Mallorca. To aply these Scholarships, you need to have the next points:
  1. You have to be registered, at least, in 3 or more Courses of Intermediate or Advanced.
  2. You have to Fill-Up the Scholarship Form (It will ask you the Registration Number, so you have to register first).
At the beginning of the week, we will give the list to the teachers in order to choose the best student in each level, and at the end of the week, we decide who will win the scholarship for next year.
The selection is based in technical and personal questions like: technique, learning capacity, attitude in class, participation, relationship,...
THERE IS A NON-RE-INTEGRABLE TUITION FEE of 75 € included in the registration price.
Students can cancel their bookings until September 10th (Except the tuition fee of € 75). From that day (September, 10th), the amount paid will not be refunded, but the registration paid could be used the following year of Tap On Mallorca by the enrolled person.

Once you have all the information, if you are interested, you can register to participate in the Cutting Contest.
