Ten lessons that show how to use rhythm to make really exciting tap. Very easy steps like stamps and claps, shuffles and ball changes. Written and presented by Susan Bishop LISTD, LRAD, BA Hons.
From 42nd Street to Tap Dogs, tap dance is about rhythm and this programme teaches you to make your own 'fascinatin' rhythm'. You need only a very basic tap technique as each lesson starts with easy stuff and gives you lots of practice with each step. Then we show you different ways to play around with the rhythm. How missing beats or making bits go faster or slower makes the steps more exciting. How to start on different beats and mess the rhythm about to get delightful results. How to use repeated patterns in fun ways.
Even teachers and choreographers will find tools to enhance and liven their dances. We've also thrown in some cool new moves like the schlam and the schlurp to spice things up. So get out your tap shoes and master tap.
