Tap Dance is a kind of dance. It’s fun because of the tap sound on your shoes.

It makes it a bit louder than ballet. It makes more noise.

Maybe I’ll be a teacher for tap dance.

My name is Chance. I’m in 7th grade and I’m 13.

((CHANCE TOM, Tap Dancer))

It’s definitely a very rhythmic dance. It definitely involves a lot of dexterity of the feet.

If I do something like music, then I’ll definitely use it to influence a lot of my music, and if I do something like dance, I’ll most likely pursue it as a secondary.

I think, I might be doing tap dance when I’m older. I’m not sure though.

((BURTON RICE, Tap Dancer))

Today, I’m going to be two days away from 90.

It’s a form of exercise, and I like the rhythm, you know, the music. So, if you’re going to exercise, it beats walking to me.

((JOAN JUENGERT, Tap Dancer))

It has been the most wonderful thing in my life. Next to my family, tapping is the most important thing I’ve ever done. It’s good exercise. It keeps your mind really alert because you have to learn new steps, new routines all the time. All my worries fade away when I’m in tap class.

((NATS))
Every child should dance. It helps them with everything in their lives. It’s supposed to be good for math if you dance and you’re into music. I have a brand new baby in my family now, a grandchild who is 3 months old, and I can’t wait to get tap shoes on her.
