High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Tap dance is a form of
dance characterized by a tapping sound that is created from metal
plates that are attached to both the ball and heel of the dancer's
shoe. These metal plates, when tapped against a hard surface,
create a percussive sound and as such the dancers are considered to
be musicians. During the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, the best tap
dancers moved from Vaudeville to cinema and television. Steve
Condos, with his innovative style of percussion tap, created a
whole new tap style that he introduced to audiences in Vaudeville,
and later to the audiences of film and Broadway. Prominent tap
dancers of this period included Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers,
Shirley Temple, John W. Bubbles, Charles "Honi" Coles, Vera-Ellen,
Ruby Keeler, Gene Kelly, Ann Miller, Jeni LeGon, Fayard and Harold
Nicholas of the Nicholas Brothers, The Clark Brothers, Donald
O'Connor, Eleanor Powell, Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable, Prince
Spencer, Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, and Jimmy Slyde.
