Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tap Dancing: Rhythm in Their Feet explores a fascinating form of dance. Dance teacher Heather Rees first offers insight into the history of tap and the influence of some of the great "foot percussion" artists. She then delineates the principles of rhythm and timing, the tempo of tap music, techniques, style, and choreography. Topics include the history and development of tap dancing; floors, shoes, and costumes; music, rhythm, and choreography; traditional steps and time steps; planning classes and exercises; sequences and routines; and improvisation and developing personal style. Heather Rees, who trained in classical ballet with Marguerite Thomas and learned American tap with Gertrude Beaton, teaches dance both in Britain and Europe.

Synopsis:

The core of this practical book explains basic, time, compound and fun steps with supporting photographs, and culminates in a full routine. It also includes an historical overview of tap dancing, and advice on floors, shoes, costumes and music.
