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.
