Jennifer Dunning makes a case for the new Tap:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>The Old Tap and the New Team Up With Affection</B><P>JENNIFER DUNNING, NY Times<P>Tap, like the rest of the world, has changed since the days of the great solo dancers. That was one message of "Tap City," the central program of the inspired New York City Tap Festival, on Thursday night at the Duke on 42nd Street. Another message was that this peculiarly American, peculiarly lovable art form is still a lot of fun to watch and even, occasionally, as exalted as those earlier tapsters, though in a different way.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2001/07/14/arts/14TAP.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>

Shoes in the Night: How the Festival Took Over Tap
by JANE GOLDBERG for the New York Times

Tap dancers no longer travel across the country to do battle. They do travel, however, to tap festivals in the summer. The festival has become a major vehicle for tap's survival, offering classes, merchandise, showcases and performances - an answer of sorts to the vaudeville circuit and the big-band era.

A Joyful Summer Thunderstorm of Busy, Happy Feet
by GIA KOURLAS for the New York Times

Tapage, a collaboration between Mari Fujibayashi and Olivia Rosenkrantz, presented "Morango ... Almost a Tango," a contemporary work set against films of the choreographers as children; it was too brief to resonate. Michelle Dorrance and Friends closed the first act with the bubbly "Music Box."

History on the Move
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice

hree divas alternately soothe and challenge our ears. Bufalino, singing throatily ("A woman is jazz . . . "), makes her taps mutter, insinuate, burst out joyously. Lynn Dally's feet whisper, skillfully sly, across the stage in her tribute to the late Gregory Hines. Sarah Petronio, a mile deep into the music, improvises with pianist Frank Kimbrough, bass player Joe Fonda, and drummer Bernice Brooks — urging them on, hushing them.
