THE clicking sound of tap shoes filled the Uniting Church hall in Gladstone on Monday afternoon with dancers from Wendy Barker's Dance Studio practicing hard.

One of the classes was the level two tap dancing, with performers dancing from 4.30pm and gearing up for their concert on November 25 at the Gladstone marina.

Then at 5pm was the level six tappers, which included 10-year-olds Leila Hess and Jaea Tassin, who also do contemporary, ballet and jazz.

Tahlia Downey, 14, and Daniel Kempson, 15, were at the hall early, finishing off their school work before dance classes.

The talented pair took away a swag of honours from the recent Gladstone Eisteddfod, with Tahlia winning a bursary for the most outstanding performer.
