Welcome to Sound Steps

Sound Steps is based in Richmond, North Yorkshire. We are a small team incorporating a dance teacher, Carol Henderson and her brother, Alan Haughton, a musician/composer who is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music. We produce compact discs ideal for the dance teacher for both tap and modern classwork. We hope to extend to other forms of dance in the future.

Our CDs incorporate an excellent selection of 32 and 64 bar phrases for tap work. These pieces of music are useful for exercises, syllabus work and routines for classwork as well as improvisation. They are also invaluable for exam work when the music is not specifically set. The music is in different styles and tempi including stop time and change of tempo which make it suitable for all types of tap and jazz tap classwork and improvisation. We also provide some 16 bar phrases suitable for modern dance and improvisation work

After consultation with the British Association of Teachers of Dancing we have also produced set music for examination work. Also the new Musical Theatre Syllabus music has been produced specially for the Professional Teachers of Dancing.
