I’ve developed a desire to showcase all the possibilities that tap can be — thinking as both a dancer and a musician, to fully embody a piece of music and create a truly special experience.I’m also learning more about the history of the dance and the importance of sharing this history.

Learning history through tap — the passing down of the movements — feels like its own area of study. The history of tap dance runs parallel to the history of jazz music, and both have had a huge impact on shaping American culture.

As we’re addressing the erasure of the contributions of Black folks in America, I want my community to know that tap is our art form; Black people created tap dance.
