Tap Dancing Historian Celebrates the Form
(2010-05-25)
(wfcr) - There are floor-pounding celebrations across the country today to mark national tap dance day. It also marks the 132nd birthday anniversary of Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, tap's first major star. A new book, "Tap Dancing America", chronicles the history of the art form, and WFCR's Kari Njiiri recently visited with its author, Constance Valis Hill. She's a Five College dance professor, and a tapper too. © Copyright 2014, wfcr
