When Learning to Tap Dance I Also Learned…

Posted Sep 12 2007 12:00am

that speed isn’t everything…

Now that may seem like a strange thing for a tap dancer to say, given my art’s emphasis on fast and fancy footwork. Nevertheless, there came a point when I realized that even in tap, doing something quickly does not always equate with doing it best, or doing it properly.

In whatever you do, always balance the “need for speed” with the quality of the outcome.

Appropriately, I’d like to direct you to the work of Chuck Green, a legendary master of tap dancing who is known more for his improvised “compositions” than for his speed.

Here is another Chuck Green Video Clip
