Format: Paperback
Jane Goldberg's book has been long awaited - and it totally lives up to anticipation.

This is not simply history of tap, but a window into the life and times of tappers, hoofers, and the lively life of artistic New York, seen through the eyes of a sensitive, perceptive, and ever alert Jane Goldberg. The book is a romp through time, loves, work and characters that she met, learned from, lived with, loved and knew. She doesn't miss a thing, and is generous to share it with her readers, lucky us!

This book is recommended to anyone with an interest in tap (of course), hoofers, nightlife, the lives of artists, and the almost lost world of bohemian New York. It is a story of persistence and adventure. And lots of tapping. Lots and lots of tapping and tappers. One big plus - tons and tons of pictures!!

I don't know how she met all these amazing dancers and other artists, I don't know how she got them to share their stories, but boy, am I glad she did - what a great read, wonderful dishy entertainment, and good solid history of the revitalization of this all american dance form.

Format: Paperback
I loved reading this book! It is for everyone who taps, has tapped in the past, would like to tap, or is just interested in reading about tap dancers. Jane Goldberg writes about her love of tap dancing and her own experience in an interesting and humorous manner. There is a great deal of information, including photos, from dancers she has interviewed. She single-handedly found some of the older tappers who shared their stories. Great reading, and the DVD in the inside cover is an added bonus!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A bright and cheery memoir giving wonderful background info on some of the great hoofers of our time.
It gave me the inspiration to keep up the hobby that I started in my later years just before I retired; tap dancing is a joy to watch, and apart from the exercise benefits, it lifts the spirits and I find myself smiling every time I dance. Loved it.
