In this program Richard Lamparski guides a tour of the history of the tap dance form, with archive film and demonstrations by two great names in the field of tap: Chuck Green and Ralph Brown.

They show the basic steps: single time, double time, shuffle, buck and wing, etc. They also show the "soft shoe" and "sand dancing." Through film we see Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, Louis Douglas, Buster West, and some great old time anonymous performers.
