Tap Dancing


Recommended Posts

I currently take tap once a week for about 45 minutes. It's really just for fun at a studio outside of where I take ballet. One of my ballet teachers had mentioned that tapping can be bad for ballet because of the looseness in the ankles. Is this true? Will it really effect me if I only take it once a week?

I really don't think it will hurt, doing that much, Giselle. :wallbash: If you did lots and lots of it, it might not be great, but once a week is not going to hurt anything.

I do tap once a week for an hour and it has not affected my ballet technique. I think it's wonderful to try some different forms of dance. And if you're gonna become a professional dancer, it's best to be trained in some other form of dance as well as ballet. :wallbash:

There's some tapping in Slaughter on Tenth Avenue. Didn't seem to hurt Damian Woetzel's ballet technique. He's still pretty good :yes:
