Tap World

About ten years ago, a group of us produced a fourteen-minute short film, 'Tap Heat', which film contrasted the traditional tap with the contemporary, as it's being created and performed by a new generation of dancers. With 'Tap World', we wanted to show how this uniquely American art form has been given an exciting resurgence through the global embrace of dancers and audiences around the world. With 'Tap Heat"s popularity, we decided to reach out and invite dancers, choreographers and dance companies from across the planet to participate in a feature-length global documentary. Along with the U.S., we received 114 submissions from thirteen countries around the world. We asked not only to see the participants dancing, but also to learn their personal stories.
