  • MASTERS OF AMERICAN TAP DANCE | www.tapdance.org
    were a way to put together a cyber community that could tap into all that talent What if there could be a video series of the best tap teachers each one offering a free glimpse into the mastery they d achieved as artists and teachers What if they could be available to any one at any time YouTube It occurred to me that there could be a series of mini master lessons that could be available for free so I started with a list of about ten people I thought might be willing to contribute videos The first person I called was Shelley Oliver who was a founding member of Manhattan Tap I d followed her work via YouTube and was very excited by her choreography her dancing and her teaching She was really enthusiastic for the idea of a video series and said she d be honored to participate With her encouragement I started calling the others on my list The name Masters of American Tap Dance came very quickly and with every new phone conversation the possibilities for this project expanded I was delighted that virtually everyone I invited to participate in the project was excited and honored to contribute to this project It was absolutely clear that everyone was passionate for tap and cared deeply about advancing the quality of the entire community It was so heart warming to hear again and again Yes This is a great idea Tap dancing needs something like this I want to contribute something Count me in Almost everyone I talked with suggested other people I should invite to join the project so my list got longer and longer Within two weeks I had about twenty wonderful artists and teachers in the project and eventually 38 artists agreed to contribute their work Miriam Nelson at 90 is the most senior of the tap masters in the series and Michelle Dorrance who is in still in her 20s is the youngest There are artists of every generation since the Tap Renaissance began in the early 70s All bring something unique and powerful to the series One the hallmarks of tap dance is that every dancer choreographer and teacher develops a personal style There aren t so much schools of thought about tap as there are individuals who have mastered their art in a way that is unlike anyone else s The way one person moves is unlike any other The kinds of rhythms one makes is different from all the others The musical interests and tastes of one dancer are distinct from every one else The vocabulary and terminology are different One person scats rhythms another only counts them another does neither One teacher breaks things down slowly in detail another demonstrates at full throttle and challenges you to pick it up any way you can One teacher wants you to do the steps exactly the way she demonstrates them another wants you to learn it and make it your own This
