Take a trip through the history of tap dancing with my friend and dancer Alex MacDonald. Learn about its origins in the post-slavery 19th century, the trials that early African American dancers went through to perform, and how the art form is changing in the present with a bunch of amazing new performers. Plus at the end of the show, Alex puts on his shoes and give us a short demonstration of a lot of what we discussed. It's a do-not-miss episode.
