Happy National Tap Dance Day!
Well, not exactly tapping, but dancing at least 🙂
A Bit Unusual of a Holiday
This year, it falls the day before Memorial Day, so I hesitated even posting about it.
Then thought, dance, the peaceful enjoyment of life, these are among the things I was in the service for.
This is among the reasons there is a Memorial Day – the willingness of people to protect a way of life from attack and harm and hate. So, yes. It’s worth mentioning, and celebrating. 🙂
Excerpt from Wikipedia
National Tap Dance Day falls on May 25 every year and is a celebration of tap dancing as an American art form. The idea of National Tap Dance Day was first presented to U.S. Congress on February 7, 1989 and was signed into American law by President George H.W. Bush on November 8, 1989. The one-time official observance was on May 25, 1989. Tap Dance Day is also celebrated in other countries, particularly Japan, Australia, India and Iceland.
National Tap Dance Day was the brainchild of Carol Vaughn, Nicola Daval, and Linda Christensen. They deemed May 25 appropriate for this holiday because it is the birthday of Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, a significant contributor to tap dance.
