There are two kinds of people in the world: those who give special days importance, and those who believe everyday is special. I tend to lean towards the latter, however I get the disposition of celebrating special days. Back in 1989 the federal government of the United States passed a bill designating May 25, 1989 National Tap Dance Day. Ever since, celebrations have occurred nationally and internationally.
Over the years the celebrations of the day have expanded to include the whole month of May. It’s one big party, which is awesome. But did you know that the idea for National Tap Dance Day first came out of a set of course requirements for a young graduate student at George Washington University? I didn’t, until I started doing research for one of the Tap Legacy™ Foundation’s resources.
