A Duke Ellington inspired song coupled with a more traditional tap style gives this routine a classic tap dance feel. You’ll feel like a star performing with Ellington’s live orchestra! Music is included at 4 different speeds so you can dance at your own pace. This is a great way to exercise both your mind and your body!
All material is taught by professional tap teacher and choreographer Rod Howell. Rod makes learning choreography easy and fun.
What’s on the video?A complete advanced-beginner tap routine (2 min 40 seconds long) broken down and demonstrated in detail. The choreography is split into several easy to learn sections. After you learn each section you’ll run through everything you know up to that point. For instance after you learn section 3 you’ll run the dance from the beginning through section 3. This helps you remember all the steps and connect all the sections together. The entire video is 2 hours and 14 minutes long and once you’re finished you’ll know the entire routine!
Is learning the choreography hard? Learning it - No. Executing it - Maybe. The choreography is explained and demonstrated remarkably well so that anyone can pick it up. You’re not just shown a step one time and expected to instantly remember it. We take time to go over the steps more than once and to connect all the sections together.
Is there music? Yes and it’s included at 4 different speeds so you can find the right tempo for you.
What if it’s too hard or too easy or I don’t like it? You’ve got several options: you could exchange it for an easier or harder routine (we cover shipping) or just get a refund. We want you to be happy, and frankly an overwhelming number of our customers are!
Should I buy this? We think you’re really going to like it and with our money back guarantee there’s no risk to you. You have nothing to lose and so much fun to gain. In fact look at what some of our other customers had to say below.
SHE LOVED IT
“Just wanted to say how much fun I've been having learning The Duke routine. It's a real challenge for me to coordinate my arms with the footwork but it's been really rewarding to be doing so many tap moves that I can recognize from some of my favorite Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly movies! It's such a good way to exercise my body and my brain! I really look forward to working on some more choreography in the future.
Thanks for keeping me inspired!”
