Welcome to TapDanceSongs.com – A site that helps tap dancers find great music quickly and easily.

My name is Terrence Taps. I am a professional tap dancer living and working in Atlanta, GA.

In December, 2006 I launched a blog at www.TapDanceBlog.com believing that tap dancers needed a place to go and be connected to all that is going on in the world of tap. Unlike most other tap sites, my blog is updated at least five times a week with fresh information and news.

Start by selecting a style of music on the menu on the left side of the page.

    Hi Arabelle,

    Free music is hard to come by, but you can find many low-cost alternatives. Using these, you can support the artists while still getting a great deal on tap dance music.

    Check out the article on this site entitled, “Where to Find Tap Dance Music!”

    I’m looking for great tap solos (for guys)!. I need something fast paced and very showy. Interests tend to broadway/show tunes. Any ideas?

    Sorry for the delay! I was performing so much in February that this site slipped off my radar a little. I just started in December of last year.


    I am going to pool my contacts and see if anyone can recommend a song for you that fits that description.

    I can’t think of any off the top of my head but we’ll find something!

    Some artist/song ideas for Graham:

    BOBBY DARIN (not musical theatre….but GREAT sound)
    Beginning To See The Light

    There are so many tunes. I don’t know where to start.

    I don’t own any of his stuff, but again great arrangements with lots of horns. Definitely showy.

    Steppin Out

    Hope that helps,

    Hey Jessica,

    Have you considered something by Rob Thomas or Matchbox 20? Nickelback might also be a good choice!

    My son is 11yrs old and has been dancing 9 yrs. he’s advanced in tap and had good stage presence. He’s finishing up Putting on the Ritz at Worlds in December so…. We need a new song. His teacher is dying to teach rock, he loves more showy music but we need some common ground that he can sell but can advance his style.. Please Help…. Top of the list is Big Bad Voodoo daddy, Route 66, Centuries by Fall out boy, cats on a hot tin roof…. Any rock or hip hop suggestions??
