Recently restored from the original negatives, these two joyous documentaries, both by filmmaker George Nierenberg (Say Amen, Somebody), helped resurrect the art of tap dancing in the early 1980s. No Maps on My Taps was a landmark film featuring music by Lionel Hampton and the dance artistry of veterans Bunny Briggs, Chuck Green and Harold “Sandman” Sims. Nierenberg made a follow-up short, About Tap, with Gregory Hines and featuring Jimmy Slyde, Steve Condos and Chuck Green. Offering lessons and insights from the masters, these films generated a multitude of new fans and inspired thousands of young dancers to put on tap shoes. Producer/Director: George T. Nierenberg (US 1979/1984) Total running time 84 minutes.
