One of the basic tap dance steps is a cramp roll. In this video, tap expert Kaleena Miller, will explain how to properly execute a cramp roll. This basic tap dance step has four sounds involving your heels and toes. A cramp roll involves going on your right ball, left ball, then dropping to your right heel followed by your left heel. Each move should be done alone so you make four distinct sounds. You also want to think about staying grounded and level throughout this move. It’s best to keep a slight bend in the leg so you can more easily drop your heels for a louder sound.
