MAY 25 - FESTIVITIES BEGIN AT 7 PM - PERFORMANCE IS AT 8 PM
A Bill to designate May 25th as National Tap Dance Day was introduced in the House of Representatives in September of 1988 and on November 7, 1989, President George H. W. Bush signed this into law. May 25th was chosen to commemorate the birth of Bill Robinson (May 25, 1878 - November 25, 1949) and his outstanding contribution to the art of tap dancing on both stage and in film through the unification of diverse stylistic and racial elements.
