Feet Beats-Tyler Knowlin's Urban Tap Dance
story and video by Jocelyn M. Goode
Most eighties babies remember Gregory Hines kickin' up funky street tunes in the 1989 movie,Tap. The film also featured veteran tap dancer, Sammy Davis, Jr. as well as the then fledgling performer, Savion Glover. The most memorable scene for me was when Hine's character created an impromptu performance to the sounds and vibrations he heard in the city streets.
