What is not shared is lost.
„For more than 10 years I have been searching and collecting recorded Tap Dancing, mostly on 78rpm records. With the support of Andreas Schmauder, one of the leading European 78rpm record collectors and dealers, I was able to find documents of tap dancing previously unheard of.“
The project is for all tap dancers, teachers, students and lovers of the art of tap dancing worldwide. Being dedicated to the history of recorded tap dancing, it documents a side of tap that has not been particularly focused on so far. In addition, more than a third of these recordings will be published on CD for the first time.
Three CDs (part 4) deal exclusively with the pedagogical-didactic aspect of tap dance and its related topics: rhythm presentation, notation and terminology. This is done by means of historical documents, that are largely unknown and unpublished.
The long lasting dream to make all these tap dance artists of the past being heard again together in one edition, will soon become a reality.
