Tap dancing is one of the great American art forms, an important expression of black heritage and culture, but it had fallen out of favor by the mid-20th century. The arrival of these documentaries by George T. Nierenberg (Say Amen, Somebody) served as a lightning rod, relaunching tap’s popularity at the start of the ’80s. With several legends of the form in bravura performances, these films — finally beautifully restored — remain as astonishing and ebullient as ever. A Milestone Films release.
