Today is National Tap Dance Day! Little Bill “Bojangles” Duck has had happy feet all day long. It is celebrated on the birthday of legendary tap pioneer Bill “Bojangles” Robinson who invented a new way to tap, transforming it from a flat-footed dance to a style that pushed the performer to his toes. On his 61st birthday, he danced down the street of Broadway in NYC! He paved the way for tap legends such as Savion Glover.
Joke: Why do ducks make great tap dancers?
Answer: Because they have “flaps” and “wings” mastered. (flaps and wings are tap dance tricks).
