Did everyone enjoy seeing SO MUCH tap dancing on last night’s Tony Awards? I did. From the performances of After Midnight, Aladdin, and Bullets Over Broadway to host Hugh Jackman, tap dancing was a star of the night, and, deservedly so.
Tap offers so many benefits to our students (rhythm, phrasing, musicality, etc.), and it is important that we continue teaching and instilling it as a part of their training. In this era of contemporary/modern/industrial focus, the power of tap dancing must not be lost or overlooked.
