No Maps on My Taps at Bernie Grant Arts Centre

Junior Laniyan introduces No Maps on My Taps at Bernie Grant Arts Centre »

A film screening and live performance

Internationally renowned tap dancer Junior Laniyan presents the rarely seen documentary “No Maps On My Taps”, which tells the story of tap as an expression of black heritage and culture.

The story and spirit of tap in its heyday, shown in rare photographs and Hollywood film clips of the 1930s, provides a backdrop for intimate portraits of three veteran ‘hoofers’, Sandman Sims, Chuck Green and Bunny Briggs.

For all dance afficionados, No Maps on My Taps is an indispensable historical record of this distinctly American art form.

The Screening will be followed by an exciting live tap performance featuring jazz music from The Michele Drees Trio, featuring Patrick Bettison (bass), John Crawford (piano) and Michele Drees (drums).
