This Sunday TAP ATTACK Celebrates National Tap Dance Day
Over 100 tappers - young and old, student and professional - will dance together in riffs and open jams in this yearly celebration of tap dance as an American art form and National Treasure. The ATDF's Tap City Youth Ensemble, Tap City Junior Ensemble and tappers of all ages will join special guests from the tap dance community at this year's event. Master of ceremonies: ATDF Artistic Director Tony Waag.
National Tap Dance Day falls on May 25 of each year, selected to mark the birthday of tap dance legend Bill "Bojangles" Robinson (1878-1949). National Tap Dance Day is celebrated throughout the United States, but holds special resonance in New York City, the birthplace of American tap dance. President George W. Bush signed National Tap Dance Day into law in November, 1989.
