Welcome back tap dancers!
When I began compiling songs for this list I realized February is quite a busy month.
*Black History month here in the U.S. and...
*when we recognize Groundhog Day. (I included a song from the movie by that name.)
*when we celebrate love (and chocolate) with Valentines Day which also happens to be...
*when we celebrate Gregory Hines' birthday.
All of this in a month that is less than 30 days long & Presidents' Day is even in there somewhere.
I hope you have as much fun tap dancing to this eclectic tap song playlist as I did pulling it together!
