A Classic Song For Tap Dancing!

This is a great tap song for tap classes of all ages. But in terms of performing, I see lots of opportunities for kids to really put on a good show to this one.

Tap Dance Music

Posted on September 24th, 2008 in For Children,Jazz,Rap & Hip-Hop by Terrence Taps

I know it’s been a while but hopefully this pick will make up for the absence. In discussing music choices with a Tap Dance Music Newsletter subscriber I remembered this great collection of music called the “Unwrapped” series.

These are extra special because they are Jazz remixes of popular Rap songs. If you like the groove of Rap, but don’t like some of the messages in the music, these CD’s may be perfect for you!

Here is the box set of the first 4 volumes!

Tap Dance Music for a Young Lady’s Talent Show

Posted on March 26th, 2008 in For Children,Rock by Terrence Taps

A fellow user of Tap Dance Songs recently left a comment on the main page seeking song recommendations for a girl’s talent show.

If you have any, please post them to comments in the following format:

Artist Name: Cyndi Lauper

Song Title: Girl’s Just Wanna Have Fun

Album: She’s So Unusual: Cyndi Lauper

And follow that with any comments you have about why you think it’s a good choice!

In this case, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” is such a light and fun song. It could lend itself to some really great tap choreography. I can’t wait to see your recommendations!

Various Artists – That’s So Raven

Posted on January 17th, 2008 in For Children,Soundtracks by Terrence Taps

Tap Dance Songs can be found everywhere! Thanks to Taylor for recommending this selection from the That’s So Raven CD. In sampling it, I heard several songs that could make for cool tap dance music, especially for kids!

Taylor’s favorite is “Beautiful Soul” by Jess McCarthy. It has a nice laid back beat and is open enough for a tap dancer to have plenty of “room” to dance.
