American Tap – Note time change
As a quintessentially American art form, the origins of Tap Dance wind through our history from Congo Square, through Minstrelsy, the Jazz Age, World War II and into modernity. Fueled by genius and challenged by adversity, it has undergone recession and rebirth to emerge vital and relevant in the new century. This film digs into the heritage of American tap dancing, and the cultural fire that forged this important art form.
Following the screening, get set for a lively solo performance by Sarah Reich, Artistic Director, Tap Music Project, and DSU student Jazz Ensemble participating with these stellar performers.
