3 Common Tap Dance Corections (and what they really mean)

You need to sit in the pocket.

You need to finish your phrase. 

You need to loosen up. 

Let’s talk about three common tap dance-specific corrections, and what they really mean. 

I have found that these specific corrections are a struggle for a lot of tap dancers, mostly, because they don't understand what they actually mean, and they’re a bit too embarrassed at the moment to ask. 

But I’m here to translate!

Listen to this episode to hear about:

  • What it means to “sit in the pocket”. 
  • The connection between Jazz Music culture and Tap Dance culture
  • What it means to “finish your phrase”. 
  • What is phrasing
  • How to release tension in your dancing and “loosen up”. 
  • Why scrunched toes are the enemy of a loose ankle.
