This nostalgic documentary investigates the history of tap dancing, particularly focusing on the 1930s, when performers became famous for accompanying live jazz music. Viewing the art form from a cultural perspective, the film, which makes extensive use of movie clips and vintage photographs, explores tap dancing in the context of the American -- and most significantly African-American -- heritage. Among the revered dancers featured are Bunny Briggs, Chuck Green and Howard "Sandman" Sims.
