The Boston Tap Company

Posted on September 16th, 2010 in Dance & DJ,R & B by Terrence Taps

A fellow tap dancer recently shared this amazing clip with me featuring the Boston Tap Company performing their signature piece as choreographed by Sean Fielder in collaboration with the company members. Prepare to be blown away!

The first minute or so features choreography executed to a song I think is called “Change”, though I’m not sure. (If you know the song please let me know and I’ll post a link later!) After that they get into the “Moments In Love” segment. Unfortunately, I have not yet been able to locate the exact version they are using online…I believe its called the “Smooth version”.

Still, I think you’ll find any version of this song enjoyable!

Transcendence by N-Geniuz

Posted on September 2nd, 2010 in Dance & DJ by Terrence Taps


I have just started using music in some of my online tap lessons! In researching tunes, I have discovered many incredible independent artists that are creating outstanding music. Much of this music is perfect for use in tap classes and in choreography!

One example is “Transcendence” by N-Geniuz, an incredible DJ hailing from Athens, Greece who specializes in creating multi-layered soundscapes. Follow the link above to download this tune in exchange for a small donation.

Through tomorrow, you can even get a sneak peak of the tap dancing lesson I created using this music. It’s one of a 6 lesson series that is helping students hone their execution of “Cramp Rolls” & “Crawls”. This lesson will vanish after Friday so check it out now.

If you want to join and gain access to all of the lessons within the private member area, act quickly! Coupon code CRAMPROLL1 will save you $40 on your membership through Friday, September 3rd.

This is another fun tap music selection that should keep you grooving all Summer. When it comes to expressing yourself through dance remember that “the groove is in the heart…”

Tap Music With A Great Groove

Posted on February 22nd, 2009 in Dance & DJ by Terrence Taps

This is great tap music whether you are warming up before class or cooling down afterwards! Check out the clip below to hear it.

Tap Dance Music, Books & Video! is a great place to get tap dance music, books, or tap dance videos.

I recently expanded the Store creating a great one stop resource for all things relating to tap!

I hope you find it helpful! If you would like to recommend any additional tap dance product, please post it to the comments section below or email me at Taps [at] TapDanceMan [dot] com.

Brasilian Music For Tap Dancers

Posted on June 26th, 2008 in Dance & DJ,Latin Music by Terrence Taps

Travel to Brasil tonight with this laid back groove. It’s called “Marimbahia” and, though it may feel foreign at first, you may be surprised at how easily you slip into its warm, relentless rhythms. This entire “Brasil After Hours” collection is worth a listen (and a tap or two).

Let me know how you enjoy it in the comments section.

Unusual Music For Tap Dancers

Posted on June 24th, 2008 in Dance & DJ,New Age by Terrence Taps

“Babylon Site” by Bill Laswell might be categorized as “ambient” or “lounge” music. Here, I am categorizing it as being a really cool song for tap dancers. With the right choreography, this song could be used to make quite an impression on an audience. Use this to open minds about what tap is!

Tap Music With A Great Groove

Posted on February 22nd, 2008 in Dance & DJ,Jazz by Terrence Taps

This is a nice smooth groove for you to dance too. It’s great for warming up before class and cooling down afterward! You can listen to the entire song on the clip below.

Tap Dance Music From Class

Posted on January 10th, 2008 in Dance & DJ,International,Jazz,Latin Music,Pop,R & B,Rock by Terrence Taps

My latest session of adult tap classes has just begun so I have decided to feature the tap dance music that we are using in those classes here!

You can click the image to purchase from or use one of these great tap dance music sources!

In the beginner’s class our warm up is set to “It Had To Be You” by Steve Tyrell. The arrangement is very open and the bass walk’s on the downbeat, making it easier to dance on when you are just starting out. This CD also features many other great jazz standards for tap dancing!

In the intermediate class, we are developing a piece around Herb Alpert’s title track, Rise. It’s a very groovy, funky piece of music for tap dancing!

In the Wednesday night intermediate class we spent some time last night working on my Paddle warmup to the song “Come on Closer” on Jem’s “Finally Woken” album. This Cd has lots of good music for tap dancers.

Finally, in my advanced adult class, we are developing a piece of choreography to an arrangement of “La Petite Mambo” on Kenny Burrell’s, ‘Soulero’ album.

For my students, I definitely recommend picking these up for practice! For those who are not students, I still recommend experimenting with these pieces some!
