The unfettered, audacious rhythmic freedom of American’s music, jazz, is matched by the phenomenal rhythmic invention and improvisational flights of contemporary tap.
There was plenty to challenge, delight, educate and transport audiences in New York in mid-July, continuing proofs that rhythm tap dancing is having a glorious, historic renaissance and those who are missing it are going to be very sorry.
