The Difference Between a Stomp and a Stamp in Tap Dance

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: http://bit.ly/MMASurgeEp1 What is a stomp? A stomp is performed with your entire weight being placed on the foot you're stomping with. It makes a heavier and louder sound. With a stomp, you slam your foot on the ground to create a thunderous sound, and then you lift your foot right back up. Your weight balance remains on your stationary standing foot. So, a stomp is a full foot step that does NOT have a weight change. What is a stamp? A stamp is a lighter and quieter step. A good way to remember the differentiation between a stomp and a stamp is to keep in mind that a stamp "sticks" to the floor. In other words, it's very similar to a stomp, but instead of lifting your foot right back up, you would keep your foot on the floor. Also, when you keep your foot down on the floor, you're shifting your weight and placing all of it on that down foot. So, a stamp is a full foot step that DOES have a weight change.
