Tap Dancer's Collection
Every Tap Dancer has a collection. We at TLF thought it would be a good idea to start featuring some of our favorite films, recordings, and books from our own collections. That's what we will be doing with the space below and on our Blog - one feature for every month. Hope you enjoy.
------------------------------------
December - Featured Film
Starring: Gregory Hines, Sammy Davis, Jr., Suzzanne Douglas, Joe Morton, and a young Savion Glover
Also featuring tap dancers: Bunny Briggs, Steve Condos, Arthur Duncan, Henry LeTang, Harold Nicholas, Pat Rico, Sandman Sims, and Jimmy Slyde.
With: Dianne Walker, Jane Goldberg, Dorothy Wasserman, Van Porter, Chance Taylor, and many more.
Description: Max Washington (Gregory Hines), a jewel thief just released from prison, finds himself torn between the high life that landed him in jail and the rhythm of tap dance that he grew up with and ultimately saves his life. The film is naturally filled with great tap dance sequences including the "Jail Scene" (Gregory Hines solo), the "Challenge Scene" (Bunny Briggs, Steve Condos, Arthur Duncan, Gregory Hines, Henry LeTang, Harold Nicholas, Pat Rico, Sandman Sims, and Jimmy Slyde), the "Audition Scene" (Gregory Hines solo), the "Classroom Scene" (Savion Glover solo), and the "Finale" (Gregory Hines solo).

This film is a must have for every tap dance enthusiast's collection. It's also the perfect starter for the up-and-coming tap dancer.

This film is rated PG-13.
