Let's talk about teaching Adult Tap - Level One!

Lets talk about Time Steps! Essentially, any combination of steps that is repeated and/or reversed every 4 or 8 counts can be considered a time step. In vaudeville days, time steps were used to set the tempo for the musicians. Beginners can learn simple time steps, with no spanks or flaps, in both traditional and rhythm forms. All time steps are rhythm-keepers, but in contemporary terms, a "rhythm" time step often refers to a more flat-footed style in which the traditional hop on the count of 1 is replaced with a step, stomp or stamp.

Watch Thelma teach a Level One Time Step for adults in the clip below! Check out all our previous blog posts for more videos. We have been posting weekly blogs since September!
