Rhapsody In Taps celebrates National Tap Day every May!


  National Tap Dance Day is every May the 25th and is a day designated by a bill in Congress to celebrate the art of tap dancing. The date was chosen out of honor and respect for the late Bill "Bojangles" Robinson whose birthday was also on the same day. The holiday was signed into law on November 7, 1989.
