    Off the couch and onto the dance floor!

    • Length of Use: Less than 3 months
    Overall Experience:

    I ordered TAPfit because I have always been curious about tap, and had even considered looking for an adult tap class. Now that we are all on lockdown at home, this seemed like the perfect way to get myself moving, give myself something challenging to learn, and have some fun! It has definitely done all of that.

    The beginner series really is that...designed for beginners. I do have a previous dance background, but not in tap. Each disc teaches a few steps, very slowly so you can follow it. Then, they put on the music and put the steps together for the workout. Let's just say I am not a Spring Chicken, but so far I find that the steps and workouts are all do-able. I had previously tried a Zumba disc, and they just kinda jumped in and it was really fast and frankly I just could not keep up. With TAPfit, I find that everything is within reach. I just have to be a little patient, and give myself the time to repeat the lessons until I feel like I "got it".

    I am really enjoying TAPfit so far, and am looking forward to progressing to the more difficult discs and workouts. It is good to have a goal, especially in this lockdown, where every day can seem the same. My goal is to progress into the Intermediate Broadway series! Maybe I will have to get myself a costume.

    Pros and Cons:

    • Can learn to tap in the convenience and privacy of home, no one to judge me but the cat!
    • Does not require a huge dedicated space in my home, when done, I can roll up my floor and lean it up in the corner.
    • It "taps" into my previous love of dance, and experience as a former dancer, makes the exercise a joyful experience, not a boring grind.
    • It engages my brain and makes me THINK while learning new steps and combinations.
    • Love the sense of community fostered by staff through the Facebook group and by sending out periodic inspirational emails.
    • Especially during the isolation of the pandemic, it helps me to feel that I am not so alone.
    • The workouts, while helpful to get me sweating and moving, are not really intense enough to cause weight loss (for me anyway).
    • Some of the video editing is a little choppy.
    • Switching angles between foot closeups and wide angle makes the workouts harder to follow.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
