Review quote

"Acia Gray has compiled and documented so much of the tap dance nomenclature in The Souls of Your Feet that is should now be clear to everyone that this artform is so deep it takes a lifetime to master and yet we're still not finished inventing it. The teacher, the scholar and the dancer in search of identification and clarification of tap terms and basic rhythm structures will find Ms. Gray's vast and inclusive guide a very helpful resource."--Brenda Bufalino, The American Tap Dance Orchestra: New York Cityshow more
