This warm-up helps brand new tappers become familiar with basic terminology, sounds, rhythms, and body positions. It is a great place to start for most ages of beginning tap dance students.
This is our standard barre warm-up used for Older Littles through Adults who have had at least a month on tap with me in order to become somewhat familiar with the steps. They include toe taps, shuffles and shuffle combinations. This has mostly visual cues.
This video takes students from the basics up to a combination walk. We start with R flap (brush step) and L heel R heel. We repeat that on the reverse side. Then we extend it to the move to the side: R flap to side, R heel L heel, R flap back toward standing leg, L heel R heel. Repeat entire combo on reverse side.
This is preparation for the "Shirley Temple," AKA "Broadway" or "Alexander" - R flap L heel R heel, L brush R heel, L toe R heel.
