Let’s Tap!

1) Your shoes are your instrument. Use your tap sounds to complement the music to which you are dancing. Your sounds should be sharp, clear, and loud – just like the percussion in your music.

2) All tap sounds should originate from your knees in an up-and-down motion. Your working foot should not start behind your supporting foot, causing your knee to hinge back and forth. It is often easiest to think of starting and ending each tap step from a jazz (parallel) passé to enable the correct up-and-down movement.

3) Your weight should be balanced over your toe taps, with your heels lifted high off the floor. Your knees should be bent, pushing your knees over your toes. This is similar to a forced arch in jazz and helps keep your weight balanced for quick movement and clear sounds.
