Dance Books: Tap and Jazz

Dance is fast becoming one of Canada’s most beloved past times. “Dance Books” are a series of lists focusing on various dance genres. The interaction between African American boot dancers and Irish step dancers on Vaudeville created American tap dance. The emergence of hip hop in the nineties reshaped tap into what it is today.
