Percussive Dance [Tap, Irish Dance, Flamenco, etc]

Recommended Posts

One of my favorite forms of dance is percussive dance, use of the feet to make musial sounds, such as tap (one of the most commonly known).


I have a large playlist where I have collected some of my favorite videos of tap, it's historical ancestors (such as Irish Sean Nos, US Buck dancing and British Clogging), we all as other styles like Spanish Flamenco. These videos date back from as early as the 1930s and go right through to the modern day, featuring the old giants of tap as well as some every day "amature" performers. :)




My favorite tap dancers of all time are the Nicholas Brothers, and Hal Le Roy (a very under exposed but talanted dancer from the 1940s-50s with a very unique style).

I only see JLo tap dance. She had a concert that she tap dance. She had a dancer that really tap dance. I still wonder how to dance like that :) 

I learned some American rhythmic tap myself, but need a lot more practice. But it's simple once you understand all the fundamentals, the real skill is in doing it all fluently, linking steps up, and of course individual musicality, since you're the musician as well as the dancer, it's easy to forget as we are used to dancing "to music", but not "dancing to create music".
