Jumaane Taylor: A Cinematic Tap Experience

tap
Jumaane Taylor is the current dancer-in-residence at the Dorchester Art + Housing Collaborative! The Chicago native will join Black Cinema House in a fusion of cinema and live tap performance!
 
About Tap “features stylistic performances and recollections by three of America’s leading male tap dancers: Steve Condos, Jimmy Slyde and Chuck Green. In the film, Condos thinks of himself as an instrumentalist who focuses on the ankles and feet, Jimmy Slyde thinks of “visual dancers” who “all make pictures” and Chuck Green advises using port de bras. Each dancer answers the question: “How does an artist discover his/her own individual style?” ”
 
*This program will be held at the Stony Island Arts Bank (6760 S. Stony Island Ave.)
The event is free, no RSVP required!
