A History of American Tap Dance:
Origins and Artistry of a True American Art Form

 

American Tap Dance fused dance traditions from Europe and Africa to create a unique art form. This presentation by local dance instructor and historian Susan Filipiak will feature rare (and all-time favorite) video clips of great tap dancers from Broadway, Hollywood, nightclubs, television, and the concert stage, as well as a live demonstration and mini tap lesson. Come and meet those tap-dancing feet!

This event is in partnership with the Ann Arbor District Library and is in conjunction with the Dorrance Dance performances February 21–22, 2020 at the Power Center.
