I am always amazed by the talent and athleticism of the Nicholas Brothers, but I always get a little uncomfortable watching them do splits like these. If I tried to do that, I’d split myself in half. #tapdance #tapdancers #NicholasBrothers #hoofers #teamtap #Repost from @iamseanscott using the @repostapp

"My daughter, she tells me when she grows up she wants to be a singer or a comic. I say, well, baby, if you want to be a comic, you’ve got to be a writer. But don’t worry, you have got tons of material: your mother is a manic depressive drug addict, your father is gay, your grandmother tap dances and your grandfather eats hearing aids."

- The mother in question is Carrie Fisher, the grandmother Debbie Reynolds and the grandfather Eddie Fisher (via kafka-on-the-shore)

Yo, DailyTapVideos posts tap videos everyday! Follow and we will send you kisses and love.

In order to become a well-rounded tap dancer, I’ve been watching a lot of classic tap videos so that I can learn more about some of the earliest tap dance pioneers and their styles. I don’t fully understand it yet, but I feel that the more I watch, the more I’ll learn. So for your viewing pleasure, here are Fred Astaire and Eleanor Powell. #tap #dance #tapdance #fredastaire #eleanorpowell #tapdancer #tapdancers #tapduet #hoofer #beginthebeguine #tapdancehistory #taphistory
