TIME OUT MAGAZINE says...
The experience: How do you say "Holy soccer balls, that hurts" en español? You'll be searching for the answer during this relentless workout that blends Latin-Caribbean dance moves with soccer-inspired athletic drills. Cuerpaso, which means "the ultimate body" in Spanish, is the brainchild of trainer Tadeo Arnold, who created the high-intensity exercises (rotating squats, jumping toe touches, etc.) to burn fat and sculpt lean muscle. If this is how Brazilian models get their killer beach bods, I don't resent them, because they've certainly worked hard for it. How fit you need to be: Fitness freak. -C

Dear Supporters and lovers of the art form,

How many of us would like to see tap become even more popular and mainstream in Australia and Worldwide?

We have found a more accessible and captivating platform to showcase tap - having it incorporated into the acts of music artists like TeAyPe. Through this, tap will reach wider and attract faster than what was possible through an annual festival. You will now see more shows produced, more media presence and even more international guest artists being invited out regularly.

By having a presence in the music industry, tap can easily make it bigtime on the airwaves, internet, TV, the movie screen. We aim to take it to the red carpet and world music stage!
