Claudia Rahardjanoto Teaches a Crossover Step

Performed by the great Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, the crossover step is traditionally done three times, with a break at the end. In her beginner tap class, Claudia Rahardjanoto uses it to teach weight shifts, having students perform it four times in a row, alternating sides. "I like this step because it looks like more than it actually is," she says. "Increasing the tempo makes it look harder." She counts in bars of four to demonstrate the rhythm: "Ah-1, and-ah-2, ah-3, ah-4."
