The Golden Age of Hollywood was the era of extraordinary tap dancing. Suave Fred Astaire, athletic Gene Kelly, and rapid-fire Ann Miller were among the pantheon of stars that made tap an audience favorite. This lecture will explore the work and lives of these famous stars, complete with videos of their most exciting performances.
