Tap 2 Pointe, founded by Charlotte Martin, launched in 2016 in Motherwell as a follow on school from the established babyballet preschool.
After training at Manor School of Ballet in Edinburgh from the age of 3, Charlotte developed a love and passion for dance and learned various styles, tap, ballet, modern, highland and salsa to name a few. Whilst Charlotte attended further education, she started to teach part time in a local babyballet franchise and fell in love. Charlotte believed that children should have the opportunity to turn dreams into reality and to be able to express themselves in a fun, safe and caring atmosphere, “every aspect of children development comes to life in a dance studio and it is fantastic to be a part of it.”
In 2013, she became the proud owner of babyballet Motherwell which over the next 3 years grew and whilst the magic spread the name of the school changed to include babyballet Motherwell, Baillieston & East Kilbride.
Whilst babyballet focuses on delivering classes to boys and girls aged 6 months - 6 years, in 2016 the first babyballet graduates due to turn 7 years asked to stay and Tap 2 Pointe was created!
Tap 2 Pointe began with two classes, tap and ballet and over the years the timetable has grown to include the ever popular highland dance and various styles.
In 2019, Tap 2 Pointe opened it's doors to T2P Studios and launched a second branch within Baillieston.
At Tap 2 Pointe every child has their time to shine and we love to showcase their hard work, passion and dedication.
The T2P dancers often take part in various performance opportunities from council ran activities, care home visits and annual theatre productions.
