LeRoy Myer’s Birthday

November 10

LeRoy Myers was a mensch. The business manager of the Copasetics, it was a rare sight to see LeRoy dance, oh, but he could. By the time I met LeRoy, in the late 1990s, he was more intent on helping others to the stage than being on it himself. For years you could find LeRoy standing at the end of the bar, every Thursday night, at Showman’s Jazz Club in New York City. Showman’s offered music every night of the week, and Thursdays was open to tap dancers – something LeRoy encouraged the owners to offer. And there he was looking on, as dancer after dancer would jump on the stage to take their chorus. There is much more that can be said about LeRoy, but that’s enough for now. Check out this Tap Legacy™ resource if you’re interested in more.
