Dancing Fools Tap Group
Tap Dance Performance Competition
Here is Katrina with her Tap Dance group at a dance competition performing to the song "Dancing Fools". This was her all time favorite tap group number. The style is traditional Broadway, with the coat and tails and top hat.
Tap dance is all about sounds and you should buy real tap shoes to get the best sounds. There are many different types of tap steps and step combinations. Watch for the ones going side, backwards, heel and toe taps.
Turns are often used in tap and the tap shoes are generally more slippery, making it easier to turn – but also easier to fall. We had one really slippery stage where we performed this dance and at least 4 or 5 dancers fell – one fell twice! But in dance, as in life, the important thing is that you get up right away and back into it.
Tap is an American form of dance which you can see performed in many great movies. Check out our Tap section of dance to see some legendary performers doing tap dances.
