  • Tracing the development of tap dancing from ancient India to the Broadway stage in 1903, when the word "Tap" was first
    used in publicity to describe this new American style of dance, this text separates the cultural, societal and
    historical events that influenced the development of Tap dancing. Section One covers primary influences such as Irish
    step dancing, English clog dancing and African dancing. Section Two covers theatrical influences (early theatrical
    developments, "Daddy" Rice, the Virginia Minstrels) and Section Three covers various other influences (Native American,
    German and Shaker). Also included are accounts of the people present at tap's inception and how various styles of dance
    were mixed to create a new art form.
