Tap App features the foundations of tap dance in an easy-to-use application. Featuring step-by-step instructional pictures, clear videos, and important hints about some of the most well-known tap dance steps out there – all in the palm of your hand.
Whats Included: This initial release includes 12 foundation steps and the ability to add-on 2 expansion packs of 11 steps each, for a total of 34 "Tap Essentials".

How the steps are presented: Each step is featured 3 different ways: (1) step-by-step images, (2) video demonstrations, and (3) text definitions/hints. Every student learns differently, so we put control of the learning process into your hands.
No tap shoes required: You can practice tap without tap shoes almost anywhere- while waiting for the bus/train, in line at a grocery store, or in an elevator--all while wearing street shoes!
o 200+ professional images of the instructor demonstrating how to execute each sound step-by-step
o vibrant color starbursts to indicate tap sounds & accents
o step-by-step hints accompany each image
o short video clips of each step, shot from 2 different angles: (1) from the back (as if in a class) and (2) from the side (close up of instructor’s tap shoes)
o repeated demonstrations of each step. Every step is repeated 4 times so that you can hear it in context within a musical measure
o audible and visual musical counts. Each step is counted aloud and the musical counts are displayed on-screen to help you learn the rhythm quickly
o clearly-worded text definitions of each step
o written display of the proper musical counts for each step
o helpful hints from the instructor highlighting the most important things to keep in mind when learning each step
