Sliding has long been a popular tap step. The novelty of the slide comes from the illusion that the floor has somehow developed a slick surface, giving the impression that the dancer is off balance and could fall at any minute. Discover how it’s done, view classic footage, and learn about the men who made the step famous.
Just ran across this video from New York City Ballet’s YouTube channel and felt it serves as a reminder for all the students out there that everyone starts somewhere. I hope you find it inspiring. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVpGAOy4I1g]
