I just recently did a search through groups about tap and found this group, so I figured I'd pop in and introduce myself. I'm Devon - a 20 year old male in the Phoenix area going to Arizona State finishing a BA in Political Science; I've been tapping for 15 years and have taught for four. Like most experienced male tappers, I tend to gravitate toward hiphop tap for "fun time," but my biggest favorite is the jazz and swing tap classics - no matter how good someone gets, the old school will always give a substantial challenge. I've seen teachers 50 years-strong get confused with some combinations from, say, Josh Hilbermann's jazz routines. Improvisation is my biggest forte :)
What sort of style(s) are your favorites? How long have all of you been tapping?
Good to meet all of you. :)
