While ballet is my main form of dance, it's so awesome to see the tap posts on here. The first month or so I was on here the tap board was definitely collecting a few cobwebs. This world needs more tappers!!

So here's a treat for all you awesome people who can dance with metal on your feet:

Many tappers have said this is the single best tap dance ever filmed! I would have to agree. I met Fayard Nicholas at a tap convention in L.A. and he told me this was done in one take. He was a marvelous man!

Love this film. I had the pleasure of taking from Fayard at Sole to Soul in Austin when I was 14. Life changing experience for sure - and was still tapping away in his 80s. An inspiration!

He brought his granddaughter to help teach us a dance "Lucky Numbers" though I can't remember what movie that was in. I still remember lots of it.

What is interesting is that all of the dances they did in films, they never taught when they were guest teachers. Weird eh? I wish I would have asked Fayard about that during the Q&A section of the class.

One take? That's impressive! (of course, even if it had taken fifteen times, it would still be impressive)

What a wonderful opportunity it would be to meet him! I may be slightly jealous right now :P

One take?! That is super impressive! They are incredible! I think I've watched it over about 10 times now, it's amazing. DEFINITELY inspiring, makes me want to put on my tap shoes and practise 'til my feet fall off :D (In the best possible way, of course!)
