Tap Dance Paradiddle

Ms. Savannah shows you her favorite paradiddle!

Ms. Savannah's Favorite Tap Paradiddle

- contributed by Ms. Savannah

Hi, my name is Savannah Pender. We're here at LAAPA. Today we're going to learn a Lagniappe Lesson!

We're going to do a paradiddle. Paradiddles have four sounds. We're going to start off with a heel, and then we're going to pull, and then dig, heel. So, we have one, two, three, four. This is really fun, because you're going to start every beginner tap class with a heel, step usually, so you just have to add three more sounds and then you have your paradiddle.

We have a one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four. You're going to keep working at this so you can get faster. This has been my favorite move since I was five years old. We have a one, two, three, four.

A oneie, twoie, threeie, four. Dig, a pull, a dig, a heel. A dig, pull, dig, heel. Paradiddle. And that's your paradiddle. Thank you for joining us today at LAAPA. We'll see you next time.
