Tap-Dancing Teens Wow the Crowd with ‘Zorba the Greek’ Routine

Tap dancing is a popular style of dance that originated in the United States during the late 1800s. It began in the African American communities of the South, where slaves would create and perform their own songs and dances. As African American culture and music spread, so too did the popularity of tap dancing.

During the 1920s and 30s, the style of dance evolved and became more popular as a form of entertainment in vaudeville shows and Broadway musicals. Well in this video, we get to see a wonderful tap dance performed by a large group of young teens, and I think you’re going to like it.
