Tap dance is characterized by the sound of one’s tap shoes hitting the floor as a percussive instrument, and is commonly considered to be a form of music. Two variations on tap dance exist: rhythm (Jazz) tap and Broadway tap. Broadway tap focuses more on the dance. Rhythm tap focuses more on musicality, and dancers consider themselves to be a part of the Jazz tradition.

Learn how to do a basic Tap Shuffle:

What puts you in the mood to dance?
Funky music? Happy feelings? Passing a test? Scoring a goal? Fridays?

At your next lesson, tell me the name of the song the pianist plays in the first video.
Hint: it’s the name of a video game.
