    Roger Bennett Riggle: My name is Roger Bennett Riggle and today we are exploring the world of advanced Tap dancing. this is one of advanced tap dancing students, Allison Taylor. Now we just showed you how to do a Buffalo with a Falap ball change. Let's take the Falap ball change out, and add a new, more complicated advanced ending, its called, what I call a Shuffle Heel, Shuffle Step. So you take your right foot and you Shuffle, and then you relevate and drop the left heel, and then you Shuffle again, and you step on that Shuffle foot, the right foot, good. Let's look at it again on the left foot, Shuffle, drop the right heel, Shuffle, and drop the left foot, that's Shuffle Heel, Shuffle Step. Let's do it slowly, 6, 7, and Shuffle Heel, Shuffle Step, Shuffle Heel, Shuffle Step, Shuffle Heel, Shuffle Step, Shuffle Heel, good. Now, let's go back to the Buffalo and put that on the end. So we are going to take the Falap ball change at the end of the three Buffaloes. We are going to throw that away and we are going to put in Shuffle Heel, Shuffle Step, here we go. So we are going to do three Buffaloes' Shuffle Heel, Shuffle Step, and 6, 7, and a Buffalo one, a Buffalo two, a Buffalo three, Shuffle Heel, Shuffle Step, a Buffalo one, a Buffalo two, a Buffalo three, Shuffle Heel, Shuffle Step. Let's try it to the side just once. 6, 7, and a Buffalo one, Falap Shuffle back, Falap Shuffle Back, Shuffle Heel, Shuffle Step. Notice that the Shuffle comes in real quick after the third Buffalo, a Buffalo three, that's the sound, a Buffalo three, okay. Now, we have finished with the Buffaloes and the Shuffle Heel, Shuffle Step, and we will go to a little tap dancing combination with that, and we will add a nice little turn in there for you that's look very impressive.
