When I found out Buddy Rich knew how to tap dance, 1) I shouldn’t have been surprised, and 2) I immediately looked him out and found the two clips below. I LOVED the sequence, so I lifted it, and want to share it with you. The rhythms are great and it’s so dynamic and fun! I’m not a tap dancer, and my lack of skill becomes increasingly apparent a the tempo gets faster (ruuuushing!), but I learned a lot doing this and reaching for something was really fun. Incorporating ideas like these are also so enriching for your vernacular jazz and partnered Lindy Hop. Enjoy!
