Gregory Hines - began tapping at three. An avid improvisator of tap steps, tap sounds, and tap rhythms. "He purposely obliterated the tempos, throwing down a cascade of taps like pebbles across the floor. In those moments he aligned tap with the latest free-form experiments in jazz and new music and postmodern dance." Responsible for National Tap Dance Day. Died in 2003 at 57 of liver cancer.
tap dancing - If you're a Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers lover like I am, and IF you've ever 'tried' to tap dance...it's NOT easy! Tap dancing is a FABULOUS way to tone the body, especially the buttocks and legs. It gives you an unbelievable cardio workout, and is LOTS of FUN!
