TESTIMONIALS FROM STUDENTS INTERNATIONALLY!

 

 

I really enjoyed myself during the classes, and you are probably the only dance teacher I’ve had that has started to get me out of my shell, so that’s really saying something!  

I think it was just the way you encouraged me to just relax and let my body move, the way it naturally will.  The environment in the classes promoted this too, just a very relaxed and fun class environment which really made me feel not afraid to try new things or to make mistakes.

“I just joined the new adult beginners tap dance class and have to say that it’s a great experience. Rachel is a young, vibrant teacher who is very clear with instructions and positive with her support. Being an older woman, I wasn’t too sure how I’d go, but I was able to follow her instructions well, came home on a real ‘high’, and can’t wait for the next class.” – Chris Goodman

 

The good thing with Winston’s class is that he works with where you’re at.   With all his knowledge he can freestyle the class and it’s a lot of fun!

– Andre Widjaja – Co-Founder of Nomadic Funk crew


“the idea of being able to dance and create the music is just so cool, it’s the original street dance”

“Its exciting learning new ways to move.”

Miaka Chen – Hip Hop Dancer

 


“I can’t help but tap dance when i’m walking – I can’t walk normally anymore”

– Loc Luu, Dancer & Uni Student

“..addictive and heaps of fun!”

Mark Turner – Swinburne Funk Club

 

‘…a flurry of furious rhythm and dynamic choreography. Mesmerized, the audience were left stamping their feet, clapping their hands and calling for more.’

Red Bennies Cabaret Club, Prahran, Melbourne

 

 

 

“Winston Morrison was cast in Parisian RendezVous  without audition- his reputation of being fast, professional and stylish was enough.

He was all that and more and brought a fantastic energy to rehearsals and shows. A thrill to dance with and the audience were charmed to bits.

I look forward to having him on board on other tap projects in Australia or internationally.” – Ruby Boukabou, Paris, France

“Melbourne Tap Dance are on a quest to share, their passion and valuable knowledge in the  performance art of Tap Dance with everyone.  The classes, information and performances are their legacy. The roots are firmly planted in historical African American Jazz Tap and there is nowhere else in Australia to find this, at such an expert level.”

– Chris Horsey, Winner Fred Astaire Int’l Tap Championship, Hot Shoe Shuffle (West End), Tap Dogs (Broadway), Bootmen (Fox Searchlight Pictures)

 

 

“Winston knows how to put on a show – he has a driving ambition that rivals mountains! Every time we get the chance to dance together is a joy filled one.”  -Thomas Wadelton, Tapestry Dance Company.

I started taking classes in October with no prior experience. I have done several musicals before, but nothing tap related. I started off with a couple private lessons just to get a feel of things and then moved into a class and I can say the only regret I have is not starting earlier. I highly recommend this to anybody regardless if you want to pick up a new hobby, or looking to add a new set of skills to your repertoire, this is a great place to take classes and the people are also fantastic as well.

- Joseph Lanciana

Absolutely love the classes at Melbourne Tap Dance. I originally just thought it would be a fun way to exercise. But it’s become so much more. I have developed such an admiration for the art form itself and I know I’m still at the tip of the iceberg in understanding all of its complexities. Winston is such an inspiring teacher and we as the students encourage and support each other. It’s challenging and varied as we are constantly learning new steps but it lots of fun. So happy I found this class.

- Pam O’Dal

Winston’s classes are very enjoyable – he really knows the art form and his passion shows. He encourages your body to move naturally with the steps and also encourages you to create shapes that improves your style and also makes it easier to achieve the techniques. I always walk away from each class with a new technique and combination. It’s challenging and fun, i will continue my tap education with Winston.

- Mixers and Shakers

I’ve been taught directly by Winston, and he really endows the art he represents with breadth and depth. This is for both tap and piano. His classes carry practical and intuitive wisdom and experience and he is adept at transferring it to each individual through a tailored approach, in good taste, style, and musicality. He is equipped to acknowledge you at all levels of skill and capability. I’ve been his student for just over a year – and my deepened awareness and appreciation of sounds, colours and rhythms – its nuanced subtleties and intricacies – have permanently enrichened my life. I’ve also found that I’m learning things quicker and more joyously, and I daresay there is a direct correlation between my improved quality of life and the inspiration that is invaluably drawn from his teachings. Winston will accept you as much as he will both critically assess and openly judge you, of which, for me anyway, is enabling me to own the artist I am/aspire to uncover. From a combination of his group and private classes over the year, I am encouraged to be more courageous as a dancer, performer and person. Growing has been fun!

My tap dance experience began with Melbourne Tap Dance in 2016 and I have enjoyed every class. I started as a complete (adult) beginner and thanks to Winston’s patience & faith in his students, along with his musical knowledge and dance expertise, my love of tap has magnified. His passion for tap is clear as he makes every lesson fun, diverse and challenging. The dedication and commitment he puts into keeping tap dance alive through the Australian Tap Dance Festival is inspirational. Watching Winston tap will electrify you and to have him teach you will give you wings! Haha…

I have been attending Winston’s classes in both Mulgrave and Thornbury since August 2017. I was looking for a school that offered casual, yet challenging tap classes for adults with no obligation of performance or end of year concert! I hadn’t tapped for over 8 years and wasn’t sure where my skills fitted in, but Winston is patient, supportive and makes sure everyone in class gets individual assessment and feedback when learning a new combination or step. Every class I have attended is filled with friendly students of all ages who encourage each other to become better dancers. I believe the mix of age makes a lot of difference to the dynamic of each class that is unlike any dance school I’ve attended previously. Winston is also the director of the Australian Tap Dance Festival held annually every September. He encourages all students to attend the affordable workshops with international tap professionals that further build confidence and skill among us all. This year I attended workshops with Peta Anderson and Shane Preston and they were FANTASTIC! Not only is he a great teacher, but he has kept the spirit and joy of tap dance alive in Melbourne and I look forward to many more years attending his classes.

I admit I first began taking classes at Melbourne Tap Dance with Winston primarily as a way to avoid the gym but still squeeze some cardio into my week. The classes quickly became much more than just exercise, they are challenging, fun, exciting and a great way to keep fit, usually while having a laugh or two. I love that the casual nature of the classes allows you to focus on improving your skills and techniques without the pressure of tests or exams. Winston is a fantastic teacher and the classes are such in a friendly and non-judgmental environment. Five years later I’m still tapping and loving it! I encourage anyone who has ever been tempted to give tap dancing a go to start by signing up to a class at Melbourne Tap Dance
