Tap Dancing : Tap Dance: Single Buffalo

By Grover Koelpin 1 comment


Now we are going to talk about a single buffalo.
Single buffalo is done by taking a step on one foot, on the ball of your foot; picking
up the opposing foot behind you, striking the flat part of your toe tap on the floor,
pulling it back and then hopping and switching feet at the same time. Step on the ball of
the foot, lift up the opposing foot, strike front, pull back, and switch feet. Step on
the ball of the foot, lift the opposing foot, brush front, brush back, and switch feet.
Step, shuffle, switch. Step, shuffle, switch. Step, shuffle, switch. Now I am going to show
you a buffalo a little bit faster. Step, shuffle, switch. Step, shuffle, switch. Now, I’ll show
you how to do the buffalo traveling. Buffalo is a very useful step to use when you want
to change formations in your choreography, so I’ll show you a few in a row. Step, shuffle,
switch. Step, shuffle, switch.
A lot of times when you first learn a buffalo it’s very difficult to balance while doing
it slowly, once you get the hang of it, and you learn how to do it a little bit faster,
it will be easier to keep your balance.
