The language of tap dancing is as rich and varied as that of any art, and different choreographers, teachers and performers often use totally different terms for exactly the same step. The various names of all steps and clear descriptions of them are collected for the first time in this reference work. The emphasis is on all variations of a name, from universally recognized terms to simple "pet" names that individual performers and choreographers have created, with extensive cross-references provided. Each of the steps is fully described, with appropriate counts, explanations and history. Many antique and unusual steps such as the Patting Juba, the Quack and the Swanee Shuffle are included.

Not in as good of shape as listed. Pages are bent and there are marks in the book. The spine isn't as crisp as it should be based on the condition. The book itself is very informative. It's quite detailed.

An excellent book to have. Has all you would expect for tap dance. Would like to see all who tap or are learning to tap to have one in their library to consult. It will be used often.

If you are interested in both the history of tap as well as the individual steps you'll want to own this book. It's a great reference book, and also a joy to leaf through and learn new things.

I found out about this book from a choreographer friend of mine - we were in a musical together, and she referred to this book for an easy time-step variation that the whole cast could do. I got a look at it, and knew I had to have a copy! If you have taken any tap, or worked along with a video, this is an excellent supplement! It's been a lot of fun figuring out assorted steps :)

From Backstage 9/18/98 review by Jennie Schulman "....intensive and comprehensive. In addition to detailed descriptions of all the basic steps extant, there are fascinating details of many of their origins. There are also varied descriptions of the social dances from the 19th Century to our own era, many of which were interpolated into tap.The Tap Dance Dictionary is highly recommended for all dance collections.

This book is a great asset for all tappers. It is filled with almost every version of every step known to tappers. I can sit for hours flipping through this book and trying new things. I also find the historical information very interesting. As a dance teacher, this book is a must-have. I am sure it will continue to serve me well all throughout my career.

EXCELLENT! I'm just beginning to tap again after 35 years of sitting on my biscuits, and this book is bringing to life all the dormant steps my feet are aching to percuss, but that my brain forgot. The steps are clearly defined and named, and it's easy to follow. The added history adds interest, as well. THANK YOU for this book!

I never received the tap dance dictionary and I am still trying to track it down. I am very upset about this.

Thank You
