« Both a dance and a percussion instrument, Tap Dance gives me the power to interpret the music, combining the dan- cer’s momentum with the musician’s rhythms. It is a sophisticated musical experience, as it is one of the few dances that simultaneously connects the body, which dances, and the spirit, the living musical soul of the musician. Tap Dance gives me the power to «vibrate» with the music.»
