• Tap dancing is an American dance form, that is more than a hundred years old.
    Tap dancing was huge in the United States in the 30's and 40's.

    When television took over the live venues, where tap dancers used to perform with other live acts, tap dance disappeared from people's consciousness for decades.
    It wasn't until the eighties and nineties that the tap revival took place.

    The old masters were revisited and Gregory Hines renewed the tap rhythms so they would fit into funk and pop music.
    Today tap dancing is an international phenomenon that is growing every day.
    It has also become common to think of tap as music itself.
    Tap dancers perceive themselves as musicians as well as dancers.
