    Dance instructor Roger Riggle demonstrates time steps with connectors.

    Roger Bennett Riggle: My name is Roger Bennett Riggle, and today we are exploring the world of advanced tap dancing. This is one of my advanced tap dancing, students Allison Taylor. Now, I believe that if you could get through this combination, you could almost learn to do anything, because its really not very easy, but if you practice it you will get it. So now we will take the Simple Time Step and put a Connector in between it, and the Double Time Step and put a Connector in between it, and the Triple Time Step, then we will connect to the LA Time Step, and we will finish with the Connector. So we have learned all the Time Steps and we have learned the Connector, and now it is time to try and put them all together. So here we go. We are going to do it once slowly, and then we will go through the combination a little faster. Ready Allison. Okay, Simple Time Step, here we go. 5, 6, 7, which is hip, hop, step, falap, and hip, hop, step, connect. The heel, shuffle, the heel, the left, double. The heel, left, the left, switch off, hell, shuffle, a triple, which has the shuffle in it, and the heel, switch off, the left, LA, connect, and the left, and those are the combinations. Now, let's see if we can get through it a little faster. So you have got simple connect, double connect, triple connect, LA connect. Here we go. 5, 6, 7, triple coming up, connect, LA, and there you have all the time steps with the Connectors. Next, we are going to show you how to do a buffalo with a shuffle heel, shuffle step in it to reverse it very quickly in an advanced style of tap dancing.
