I have never learned how to tap dance, but enjoy watching those who are very good at it. It looks like it would be more multi-tasking than I could handle. It also looks like it would be a very good workout.
I have never thought of tap shoes as also being musical instruments before. That is an interesting concept and really makes a lot of sense.
I am really amazed at the women who can wear the high-heeled character tap shoes. It looks like it would be hard enough to move around in regular tap shoes, but to add high heels would really make it challenging.
