The Al Gilbert Tap Technique!
This is the ORIGINAL Al Gilbert Grade 1 Tap Technique set to a piano and drums soundtrack. There are 40 Exercises and a 1-chorus dance routine included on grade 1. Grade 1 is designed as the entry level of tap, perfect for your 4-6 year old dancers. Grade 1 Tap Technique begins the foundational concepts of balance and understanding right & left. With the exercises at center floor, your dancers will strengthen basic movement and patterns. This beginning level tap class is well organized and takes the guesswork out of teaching first time tappers. Each step is broken down in a systematic, foolproof way, making learning exact, easy, and fun!
