Q&A with director Mark Wilkinson and cast

The history of tap is an ever-evolving panorama of inclusion, adversity, and reinvention. This in-depth documentary is an absorbing narrative about a quintessentially American dance form—from its origins, to the historic and cultural events that shaped it, to its present day rebirth as a vibrant art form. Featuring archival footage of classic tap stars and highlighting the new generation of emerging talent, and commentary from historians, choreographers, and hoofers, this chronicle inspires and enlightens. World Premiere
