Tap Dancing America

A Cultural History

Constance Valis Hill

  • The first comprehensive history of tap dancing in its three-hundred-year evolution in America
  • Meticulously researched, drawing on a bevy of primary and secondary sources over 20 years
  • Challenges the notion that tap "died" in the 1950s and 1960s
  • Foregrounds the contributions of women in tap dance, the history of which has otherwise privileged male soloists
