Learn Tap Dance Books

The Tap Dance Dictionary
"There aren't many TAP dictionaries out there, and out of the few I know of, this one is an asset to have by my side in my dance studio. It has clear definitions and explanations on how to perform the steps. It's got a touch of history for the curious, and has become a trusty companion. I like that it contains different terminology from places all around. A definite five star book!"

The Souls of Your Feet - A Tap Dance Guidebook for Rhythm Explorers
"This book is a gift to the tap community and the community at large. It explores rhythm, musicality, the body, and the passion behind tap dancing in an extremely meaningful way. The steps and explainations are laid out in a very organized way so that each lesson builds on the previous. This book provides new insight on traditional steps and techniques while inspiring the dancer, no matter what level. It discusses many aspects of tap that had previously gone undocumented and is a treasure for any teacher, student or (as the book says) rhythm explorer"

Inside Tap : Technique and Improvisation for Today's Tap Dancer
"I was trained in traditional and flash tap dancing, so I knew very little about rhythm tap. This book goes over the basics of tap and many traditional tap steps. What makes it so great, though, are the in-depth explanations of rhythm, dynamics, syncopation, accents, and new forms of tap, including rhythm tap and orchestrated tap. The explanations are clear and easy and the practice exercises are excellent. This is a must-have book for anyone wishing to expand their tap knowledge and artistry."
