After growing up in a syllabus then teaching it for over 15 years, it was a huge decision to change to another syllabus. But changing to Glenn Wood Tap was the best decision I have made. The exam procedure is such a breath of fresh air and students feel calm, relaxed and happy. And it just so happens, we have produced incredible tappers along the way! Forever grateful!!

I have been teaching GWT Syllabus since 2007 and I love it! The syllabus is great. It’s so varied with barre work, combinations, corner work and routines – giving dancers plenty to work on and achieve. My students love doing GWT tap exams. The examiners are always friendly and positive, making the students want to come back year after year.

We love the Glenn Wood Tap syllabus and it has been an integral part of our tap training since 2005. The Syllabus was so easy to implement and our students have responded very well to how the technical components of tap dancing are broken down in a way that is easy to learn, then it is all put together in exciting combinations of choreography that enables our students musicality and performance quality to shine. Each year our students look forward to their tap exam which is seen as a milestone and celebration at our studio. However we also use the syllabus for students not participating in tap exams as it ensures they receive structured progression in tap. GWT inspires a love of tap dancing in our students that is a gift they can keep for life. We would recommend GWT to any studio owner wanting to reinvigorate tap at their studio or who are interested in ensuring their students receive the best training in this genre.
