STEP BY STEP; A Complete Guide to Teaching Tap BOOKS ONE & TWO

After teaching Tap for more than 35 years at my own studio and at studios, conventions and teacher’s training schools all around the world, I decided to combine my Tap syllabus, my Music Theory training and my classroom experience into STEP BY STEP; A Complete Guide to Teaching Tap  BOOKS ONE and TWO.

BOOK ONE covers BEGINNING and ADVANCED BEGINNING material while BOOK TWO tackles INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED INTERMEDIATE work.

Each level breaks the material into 16 classes.  Depending on the ability of the students,  material can be covered in one class or teachers may spread the material over several weeks.

It tells the teacher what they will need to prepare for class.  Gives hints on teaching the material as well as information on Tap History and Music Theory.

These books contain hundreds of exercises and steps.  Specific steps are provided for each lesson, counts and the Musical Notation is also given.

A full DICTIONARY OF TERMS  for all steps in the book can be found at the end along with Classroom Handouts.

Lists of skills for each class and each level can assist in preparing student progress reports.

Everything you or your staff need to have a successful, fully organized and time tested Tap program is available in these two books.  Just add students!

BOOK ONE is 333 pages, BOOK TWO is 480!   Each book costs $70 or purchase both for $130!

Go to the TEACHING TOOLS to see more about the entire line of books and Tap products available and print the ORDER FORM to begin your order.

FLASH TAP CARDS; TIME STEPS and CRAMPROLLS!

Inject some fun into your Tap classroom with a deck of FLASH TAP CARDS!

There are two completely separate decks!

The first is a deck of more than 50 different Time Steps, complete with the counts.

The second is a deck of more than 50 Cramprolls also with counts.

The cards can be used individually to introduce new Time Steps or Cramprolls to you Tap class or combine one of the Cramproll cards with one of  the Time Step cards to build larger combinations.

Students can draw from one or both decks and work alone or with friends to build groups of steps.

Stuck for choreographic ideas? Just pull a card from the deck!

Select a card and teach a new Cramproll or Time Step every week for a full year!!!!

These are great tools for days when the teacher needs a bit of a break or when a substitute teacher is called on to teach a class that he/she usually doesn’t teach.

The format is fun, easy and unexpected!

They come sealed and in their own windowed box for storage.

They make wonderful gifts or stocking stuffers for Tap teacher or for any student who loves Tap!

One deck is $35.  Get both for $60!

Acrobatics for the Dance Studio; A Six Level Program

This was the first book that I authored and it was completely updated two years ago by my daughter, Caitlin Haywood.  After having taught Acrobatics in my own studio , coaching gymnastics and doing floor exercise choreography for private gyms and high school teams for many years I decided to take inventory of the skills and organize them into a six level program specifically for use in the dance studio setting.

Each level comes with a List of Skills separated into four categories (inverted balance skills, flexibility skills, counterbalance skills and skills that rotate around an axis) as well as combination skills and appropriate dance skills to assist in connections.

Information on safe spotting of skills and a complete Dictionary of Skills is also included.

New acro teachers can use the book cover to cover.  Seasoned teachers can check the skills lists or the full Index of Skills to make sure there are no holes in their program or find interesting variations on the skills they are already teaching.

A full Warm Up is shared at the beginning of the book as well as  Guidelines to help you move through the program effectively.

Many teachers using the book have commented that they enjoy the variety of skills, specifically in the beginning levels.  Star cards, Skills posters and student progress reports can be made using the Skills Lists for each level as a guide.

Thousands of copies have been sold all over the world and this continues to be one of my most sought after publications.  The 148 page book is spiral bound to allow it to lay flat and is printed on one side of each page to allow for plenty of room to add your own notes.

Treat yourself or your staff with a book that will benefit all your acrobatic students as well as your studio!   Look under TEACHING TOOLS for a complete list of my books and teaching aids and click ORDER FORM to start placing your order.

OUR VENETIAN HOLIDAY!

When we were not allowed to board our Caribbean Cruise in January of this year due to problems on board the ship, we went home pretty let down.   My husband and I have ceased giving each other larger presents for our Birthdays, Anniversaries, Valentines Day and Christmas and instead, choose interesting vacation spots to travel to together and share something we have very little of in our daily life…TIME.  We had been looking forward to a week away to refresh and relax and all we got was a nice weekend in New Orleans.

So, when we saw a sale on the same cruise line going to some pretty cool places that we’d never been, we decided to cash in our free cruise and go!

The cruise began in Venice, Italy so we left a day early and had one night in Venice to wander around and get a feel.   We were both surprised by the hustle and bustle of a city that is completely reliant on boats and walking.   I was glad that we are both of good health and able to walk and navigate the luggage and many bridges and steps that fill this labyrinth of a city.

Our first trip down the grand canal was on an overcrowded tourist filled vaparetto  (water bus) as we tried to listen to Rick Steve’s Audio Tour and learn something about the buildings we were seeing.  We arrived in St. Mark’s Square in the heat of the day and were met by huge crowds of people in long lines waiting to get into the basilica and other places of interest.

I was fried and hungry and not to impressed until……….

We walked around the corner of the grand square, down a shady little alley and found a charming little restaurant where we sat outside, ordered local beer, had a terrific sandwich and did what we love best…..watched the people go by.   I realized I had been trying too hard!

So we got gellatto and walked around loosely following a “walk” from our tourist book, found the hotel we were to stay at on our return (which is huge when you are pulling luggage) and just enjoyed the day.

After a much needed nap, we had dinner on the edge of the Grand Canal and began to feel the charm of Venice.

The next morning we boarded the Royal Caribbean Splendour of the Seas, one of their smaller boats, more like a grand hotel than a sprawling city.

Our balcony gave us an overview of Venice’s red tile roofs and we enjoyed traveling out of the lagoon into the Adriatic Sea.

First stop was Croatia and the ancient walled city of Dubrovnik where they film Game of Thrones.  It was something out of a picture book and I could imagine the original residents living there.  Again I was glad we have health on our side as we climbed up to it’s higher outer edges where we had another local beer and shared a really good pizza!   Shawn, being the triathlete he is, decided to climb the stairs and walk the mile and a half around the top in the mid-day sun.  I decided to sit on a bench and have a coke light.    He got terrific pictures!

We then went to Turkey where we visited the ruins of Ancient Ephesus and The House of the Virgin Mary.  I was overwhelmed by the history and beauty that were still evident in both places.  I walked the same path as Cleopatra and some of the apostles and stood on the stage of the grand theater.

We had a lovely lunch with a huge array of honey soaked deserts, another local beer and watched a “dance/pageant”.   We were also forced to buy Turkish Delights buy a local blocking the door  to our bus (he wanted me to buy 10 boxes…i bought one and laughed my way onto the bus) and saw a rug making demonstration that was surprisingly informative!

On to Santorini, Greece!  An island city that sits high on a volcanic hill, highlighted with blue and white buildings and round domed churches.   Its sights and food were delicious.  Again I was thankful for our health as we traversed it’s hills and winding streets.  Thank god for the gondola lifts because a donkey ride was the only smelly alternative.  More local beer, feta and lamb!   Could have stayed in one of their cliff side hotels for a lifetime.

Next stop was Katalona, Greece where we visited the ruins of Ancient Olympia.  The place where they light the Olympic Torch every two years.  It was so impressive in size and the number of different ruins and building.  Shawn got on the starters block at the original stadium and really was intrigued by the building that Nero stayed in while he “competed” in the Olympics.  (They let him win everything cause he was “emperor of the world”)

More local beer, gyros and more local beer!

We returned to Venice on a Saturday and stayed until Tuesday morning.  We were there during the yearly historic Regatta down the Grand Canal ….a parade of fancy gondolas and rowing crew boats.  There were races too but mostly pageantry.  We sat on the steps of the beautiful Cathedral dedicated to Mary of Good Health (built to show appreciation to Mary for her intercession in stopping the plague) for almost five hours, drank wine, a few beers, ate sandwiches, got a French lesson (yes we were in Italy) and enjoyed the spectacle.

Our tiny little third story walk up hotel was in just the right place.  We found “our favorite restaurant”.  We had lots of pizza, pasta and pastries.  Saw some of the most beautiful churches imaginable.  Took our gondola ride on the last evening.  Took a day trip to the charming and colorful island of Burano in the Venetian Lagoon where they make lace and excellent lunches!

It was a bit sad to return home, but we brought some of the beauty home in our hearts and feel like we touched a bit of history.

My next stop is a return trip to South Africa tomorrow!  We will work very hard and then enjoy the never ending, always surprising beauty of that amazing country!   I’ll show you pictures when I get back!

(and beer)

Coming home was rough!  We knew it would be a full scheduled Fall for both of us but we found out a lot about the world that we didn’t know and visited placed that were inspiring in their age and beauty.

Enjoy our pictures below!

Next stop for me…..SOUTH AFRICA !  Hard to believe that this will be my 7th trip to that beautiful spot in the world.  I’ll let you know how it goes!!!!

Fun with an Icosahedron

What’s an Icosahedron?  It’s a 20 sided cube just right for dance games.

Write a dance step, tap step, ballet term, etc  on each side and let the students roll to pick their step!

Can also be done with facial expressions or musical symbols for music theory training

icosahedron  enlarge and cut 20 triangles and fold on dotted lines

directions for icosahedronglue them together in this pattern, roll and have fun!

IMPROVISATIONAL IDEAS FOR CHILDREN

The purpose of improvisational movement for young children is to connect their common experiences with the new movements they will adopt in dance class.   It also allows them the “power of decision” in the classroom where the norm is to listen and obey.

Not all children and certainly, not most teachers are comfortable with improvisation.  Having a prepared assignment and time frame always helps.  Things are always smoother and more interesting when music is playing, and music will effect the quality of movement.

Improv assignments should always be within the realm of the child’s life experiences.  We are trying to find concrete experiences to help with abstract movement and ideas.

Be aware of movements that will assist in what you are trying to teach in the classroom.  (skipping promotes passé’, rolling on the floor mirror some of the movement necessary for chaine’)

Assignments can match the theme of the week (month) or can be chosen simply to burn off excess energy to allow the group to focus.

There is the occasional wrong foot here or there but some good ideas on how to stack basics.

Most have been taken from MY book STEP BY STEP; The Complete Guide to Teaching Tap  BOOK ONE.   To see this book and my other books and teaching aids go to the my home page and click TEACHING TOOLS or the ORDER FORM.
