I Hate to Exercise, I Love to Tap available in DVD
Bonnie Franklin ably teaches tap dancing to the most inexperienced student in I Hate to Exercise, I Love to Tap. Her enthusiasm for the style is apparent in this easily absorbed lesson. The star of One Day at a Time has been teaching since she was 12 and has appeared in several theatrical productions. Her skill level translates into a fundamental know-how of what steps to push. The "waltz clog," the "soft shoe," and the "time step" are all broken down for the beginning learner. After demonstrating the moves several times, Franklin concludes with a fleshed-out tap routine. Fans of this release seem confident after only a few viewings. Most are still anxiously awaiting a follow-up. For the curious or out of practice dancer, this video comes highly recommended.

I have been through many of the exercise videos over the years, starting with Jane Fonda Low Impact workouts. While I enjoy the Richard Simmons series, I looked for something a bit different. This is great! Her teaching style is perfect for a beginner as she give you all of the basic steps and puts them together well with great instruction throughout. The routines do get more complicated as you go but nothing that you cannot keep up with step-wise. If you manage to do the routines at her demo pace, you will get quite a cardio workout. I was really surprised! I always do low impact due to joint pain, but these routines are not a problem for me at all. I even boutht tap shoes "but had to use plywood to dance on as they marked up the tile floor!". But that tapping sound also makes it fun, and some of these steps won't work well with sneakers. So get a pair of shoes and work those legs!
I hate to exercise, I love to tap is easy to follow, Bonnie Franklin teaches in a clear and simple way. I started dancing almost at once, it is such an enjoyable video, I keep going back to it, and spend hours practicing. love it!!!!
