Full movie description "Tap World":About ten years ago, a group of us produced a fourteen-minute short film, 'Tap Heat', which film contrasted the traditional tap with the contemporary, as it's being created and performed by a new generation of dancers. With 'Tap World', we wanted to show how this uniquely American art form has been given an exciting resurgence through the global embrace of dancers and audiences around the world. With 'Tap Heat"s popularity, we decided to reach out and invite dancers, choreographers and dance companies from across the planet to participate in a feature-length global documentary. Along with the U.S., we received 114 submissions from thirteen countries around the world. We asked not only to see the participants dancing, but also to learn their personal stories.
Reviews of the Tap WorldI found this documentary on Netflix streaming. All my life I have admired tap dancers, I occasionally break into a little, bad tap dance when I am happy. So I found this film totally enjoyable.
Tap dancing is an American invention, but the film shows how far it has spread. In fact to all corners of the world. In preparation for the documentary they solicited videos of people tap dancing and from that they chose a number of them to be featured. Plus the film includes select professional tap dancers.
They make an important point - you don't go into tap dancing to get rich, or earn a living. The better tap dancers who become well-known subsist by having a studio and teaching. No, you go into tap dancing because you love it.
My favorite in the film is a young man who grew up in difficult circumstances, he still sleeps on the couches of others, he shows us his "home" which is a small storage locker where he keeps his things, including his tap shoes. But he is also industrious, he goes onto subway cars, announces he is a college student working for tuition, and he dances to elicit donations. He has a positive attitude, he doesn't get down and feel sorry for himself, he gets out and does what he needs to do.
Most likely the best tap dancer alive today is New Jersey's Savion Glover, now in his early 40s. The great Gregory Hines said that Glover might be the best tap dancer ever. He was mentioned in this documentary but nothing else. Glover is a great spokesman for the art of tap dance, I find myself wishing he had been included. His dancing is virtuoso where everyone else is simply competent.
Still, even with that omission I found this to be a very worthwhile documentary for anyone who has an interesting in tap dancing, either as a performer or as a spectator.
