How to Tap Dance : How to Do a Ball Change in Tap Dancing

By Grover Koelpin 3 comments


Okay so now that we’ve learned a basic shuffle
and you practice hopefully doing them rotating from the right foot to the left foot we’re
going to do add another little thing in there to go with the shuffle and it’s called a ball
change and the ball of course as we talked about is the ball of the foot. And a change
means your switching weight from one foot to another and it looks like this. So using
the ball of your foot just that you want to step back onto that foot and then back onto
the foot you originally standing on, it’s just taking weight off of one and putting
it back on the other like that. Now if you want to combine that with a shuffle it looks
like this you have your brush your strike, back on that ball an onto the other foot,
put that together it’s called shuffle back change. And it’s good to practice over and
over
on both feet.
