Step Dancing is a form of dancing which emphasizes a solo routine. While often done in groups, these dances can be performed individually and emphasize foot work and arrangements of steps. Step dancing falls into two broad groups, soft and hard shoe, which each have their own routines and techniques. Hard shoe is noted most in the stage show performances like Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. This could be considered the Irish equivalent of Tap Dancing, using a special shoe to create the tapping sound.
