The Tap Awakens
by Postmodern Jukebox ft. Sarah Reich
Today the target audience of the original STAR WARS is 52 years old...Can you believe it's the 40th anniversary already?...Many of us fans are older than that and many are much younger...It's a saga that crosses generations and genres

Today is also National Tap Dance Day...As a kid I was fascinated with tap dancing...I never made a strong enough case but I really wanted to take classes despite knowing the other kids would make fun of me...I wanted to be the next Buddy Ebsen (Y'all know, Jed Clampett from the BEVERLY HILLBILLIES ) or Bill Robinson (I didn't know about the Nicholas Brothers until I was an adult )...Unfortunately I can't tap my left toe at all without using the muscles in my thigh and hip and I have never even had a hint of rhythm

National Tap Dance Day falls on May 25th every year and is a celebration of tap dancing as an American art form. The idea of National Tap Dance Day was first presented to U.S. Congress on February 7, 1989 and was signed into American law by President George H.W. Bush on November 8, 2004. The one-time official observance was on May 25, 1989. Tap Dance Day is also celebrated in other countries, particularly Japan, Australia, India and Iceland. Tap Dance Day is celebrated online, with over 3,000 mentions on social media in 2016

Tap dance day can be celebrated with an event which may be organized by a studio or tap dance interest group. Some may also celebrate it individually due to geographical dispersion or lack of access to the wider tap community. National Tap Dance Day is celebrated in many different ways. For example, a studio may send people out onto the streets to teach the "Shim Sham Shimmy" to passers-by. However, there are several cities (particularly in America) that have their own performances and events to coincide with Tap Dance Day.
