Review:

Patiently, accurately, warmly and quite intelligibly, Constance Valis Hill guides the reader through the Nicholas brothers' career, number by number, positioning them within both white and black theatrical traditions, which she authoritatively delineates.--Mindy Aloff "The New York Times "

Hill's book, one of the few sustained analyses of tap, supplies the background-minstrelsy, 'class' acts, swing-and, along the way, a history of American racism...It also tells a love story.--The New Yorker

A natural for dance enthusiasts, this is also essential reading for anyone interested in entertainment history.--Library Journal

Synopsis:

Tap dance innovators and stars Harold and Fayard Nicholas are the focus of this biography that not only tells of their performances with Duke Ellington and Cab Calloway and their many appearances in films, but also examines their choreographic contributions to the art form of tap.
