Shuffle, hop, step. Grab a pair of tap shoes and get ready to make some noise. When you tap dance, you do more than dance to music. You make music. Tap Dancing will show you what it takes to find the beat with your feet.
Gr 2-4- These unremarkable books cover three types of dance. In Ballet and Tap , the focus is on technique with a small amount of information about their history and some professional performances. In Ballroom Dancing , the emphasis is on explaining the different dances such as the quickstep and rumba. There is enough clearly written information to provide an introduction and an adequate number of color photographs to support the explanations. It appears that no effort was made to include different ethnicities in the young amateurs in the photographs. In fact, except in Ballroom , in which boys appear as part of a dance couple, the children featured appear to all be Caucasian girls. There are a few photographs and some brief information featuring some ethnically diverse professional dancers. Many other resources provide the same basic information.-Carol Schene, formerly at Taunton Public Schools, MA
