So how does this work? To start with, you get videos of 315 tap steps and 315 practice exercise combinations - one for each step in our tap dictionary (not including the tap dictionary’s 6 bonus steps). Each step is broken down clearly from behind and also gets its own short practice exercise combination (about 32 counts) with a slow clear breakdown. At the end of learning each practice exercise combination you’ll do the entire combination from start to finish at regular speed and then a little faster. In addition to all that you’ll get PDF files with individual steps written out including counts arranged alphabetically (Dictionary) as well as by level (Syllabus). You also get PDF files of the practice combinations arranged the same way.
Keep in mind the purpose of the practice exercise combinations is to help you improve each step from our tap dictionary in a more interesting way than just doing the same step over and over.
In other words they aren’t designed to be flashy pieces of choreography but instead to allow you to work on steps in a more pleasurable way than just simple repetition. All combinations WORK BOTH RIGHT AND LEFT sides of a step when applicable (so a step like buffalo will be done on both right and left sides, but jumps on the other hand use both feet at once so there is no right and left side for jumps).
So is it an app? No it’s not, it’s a collection of 315 videos of tap steps broken down (plus 6 bonus videos/steps) and 315 videos of practice combinations (for each step in the dictionary except for 6 bonus steps). The good news is this means you can use it on ANY device - iPhone, Android, iPad, Windows, Mac, etc. And not just one device mind you, ALL of your devices.
So how are the videos organized? All 315 steps and all 315 combinations are split into 7 different levels from easiest to hardest. So level 1 has easy steps and combinations while the steps and combinations for level 7 are quite difficult.
THE STEPS AND COMBINATIONS ARE IN SEPARATE VIDEOS! 315 videos of steps (plus 6 more bonus steps) and 315 videos of combinations.
Are the steps and combinations written out? Yes they are and the counts are too!
What is a data disc? It’s like a usb thumb drive in disc form. Technically it’s called a DVD-ROM but it doesn’t work in a regular DVD player. You put it into a computer and then copy the files from it to your hard drive. From there you can transfer it to all your devices. Sound complicated? Don’t worry we have video tutorials and Rod (the guy in the videos) even offers free tech support to help!
Is it good for tap teachers? Tap teachers LOVE IT! It’s so great to have all those steps and practice combinations for your class to do regardless of what level they are. It’s also helpful if you get stuck and need some ideas for patterns to work into your choreography.
Is it good for tap students? It’s AMAZING for tap students. It gives them a chance to learn new steps and practice them in a more interesting way than just doing the same step over and over. It also helps them learn how to connect different steps together and to work both the right and left sides.
