Advanced Tap Dancing Moves : Advanced Shuffle Toe Combination in Tap Dancing

By Grover Koelpin 100 comments

Here is a little combo I like and it a kind
of a cool rhythm to it, let us do it slowly first though. Shuffle toe, shuffle toe, shuffle
toe, toe, dig, brush toe, heels dig… again shuffle toe and I want a little attitude with
this dig, toe, okay, so shuffle toe, shuffle toe, toe, dig brush toe, heel, stomp, okay,
five, six, seven, eight, it is kind of cool right just like… alright go faster, again
from the side alright, again from the side, alright so I want to put it all together with
something else, shuffle toe, shuffle toe, toe… okay, shuffle toe, shuffle toe, toe,
dig… stomp, stomp, stomp.

I find tap more exhausting than modern, simply because everything has to be exactly right. With modern you can put your own twist on things, but generally in tap, everything has to be at exact angles, posture needs to be perfect etc. It's harder than it looks, and I've done it for the last 15 and a half years.

It is clear that she can dance, she has a sence for rhythm and movement, you can just see it.
It' s not really point just in doing steps correctly, it has too look easy and natural – and it's not something you can do it from the first time.

She is doing really good. Sad this is what has happened to society.. a bunch of people with nothing better to do than slam some one who is doing something very neat.

Nice lil combo, only complaint is the acoustics in the space where it was taped, my ears hurt a bit each time she did toe.

Those arn't tap shoes…. real tap shoes are black with metal heels. It gives them a better sound and less of a chance to sprain your ankle.


Nov 11, 2009, 3:19 pm Reply

those are heel taps. indeed tap shoes. i've never personally wore them but they look real hard! i've watched several of my mentors kill it in some heel taps. its just a different type of shoe. glad to help clear up confusion. 🙂 -izprez

I am a forty-one year old man who took his first tap lesson this evening, and Miss, I appreciate your instruction as well as your energy. It is pleasure and inspiration to watch you dance. This stuff is difficult, and the class moved fast, so I will be referring to your videos frequently. Thank you.

Apr 4, 2010, 1:14 am Reply

God this woman is obnoxious. And she's a terrible tapper. First of all, she either needs to lose the shoes or learn how to tap in them because she consistently misses shuffles. Second of all, when she does get the sound out, it's inconsistent. And third, she's so unoriginal that I'm actually embarrassed for her. It irritates me that a place called expert village would release something like this under their banner.

I think my favorite part is the scatting of the steps. It took me a while as a teacher to become completely comfortable with that…especially when the students look at you all crazy…lol! I would like to see how this step can be "colored" differently with various accents…good lesson. Thanks!

sorry to correct most people, but nowhere on the video or description does it say "Melbourne Shuffle"

"Shuffle" by itself is a style of dancing or a technique, i'm not sure.

But this video si good and accurate, i watched it thinking it was Melbourne Shuffle, too, but then i saw it didn't say "Melbourne" anywhere.
So it's just a misunderstanding.

Good video btw.
