About Electronic Tap Dancing

Information about electronic dancing systems and products. Some of these systems amplify the sound of a dancer's tapping and some of them allow tap dancers and other dancers to make music with their shoes. Some of the designs feature tap dancing on an electronic tap board and other designs embed the electronics inside shoes connected wirelessly to a nearby speaker.
