A History of Tap Dance in the Village with Tony Waag
Tap Dance was born in the Five Points District in lower Manhattan. It traveled uptown as the city expanded, and was a staple of Hollywood musicals and TV variety shows of the 50 ’s and 60’s. In the 1970’s tap enjoyed a renaissance at venues in and around Greenwich Village. Today you might see it on the street, in a park, in a late night club, or on a stage.
Tony Waag is Artistic and Executive Director of the American Tap Dance Foundation located at 154 Christopher Street. ATDF offers ongoing education and training programs for tappers of all ages and levels. In December of 2014 Tony received a Dance Magazine Award which recognizes those whose contributions have left a lasting impact on the dance world.
