Highly recommended both for dance school library collections and tap aficionados everywhere Feb 15, 2011
By Midwest Book Review
Tap Dance History from Vaudeville to Film is an extraordinary anthology of original film footage from the 1930's and 40's featuring tap dancing at its finest, largely from the private collection of Mark Cantor's Celluloid Improvisations Music Film Archive (which consists of 4000 jazz-musicals preserved on 16 mm sound film, videotape, laserdisc, and DVD). Each choice scene was carefully researched and chosen by Andrew J. Nemr of The Tap Legacy (tm) Foundation, specifically to teach dance professionals, fans of tap, and lay viewers about this history and evolution of this remarkable, lively, athletic and graceful form of dance. Performances from legends such as Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, Will Mahoney, Juanita pitts, and more including acts and chorus lines comprise this jewel of dedicated tap-dancers performing their very best. Highly recommended both for dance school library collections and tap aficionados everywhere. 45 min.
