My Top 5

Tap, Tip of the Toes or Trailblazer, these artists were extraordinary people on and off stage.  Most of them were civil rights activists and teachers as well as dancers and choreographers.  Some even starred in major film productions.

This is a tribute to those paving the way in dance back in the day.  They opened doors, literally, and broke down barriers to earning a living for African Americans in this form of entertainment so that those like me can benefit from having so many possibilities today.  So, here are my top 5/6 greats that have influenced me and that have made dance such a fascinating art form to teach and study.  Did any of these make your top 5?  Click the gallery pictures to read about these iconic artists and leave a comment to let me know.
