A couple of months ago, Dance Spirit Magazine contacted me and asked for an interview about tap SLIDES! History of, key people, how to, etc. Imagine trying to explain to a young dancer the proper technique for executing a slide in tap dancing… in words, in a magazine article! Whew! No small feat. (Lucky feat is spelled as it is, otherwise I’d have to say, “No pun intended.” Sorry, those kinds of things just stand out to me.)
They put together a nice article about tap slides, and have also interviewed tap dancers Roxane Butterfly (the late Jimmy Slyde named her “Butterfly!”) and Mark Goodman.
Check it out! Fun Stuff.
