Description
Part of the documentation of the week-long tap dancing workshop By word of foot I, presented by the Changing Times Tap Dancing Company on October 13-18, 1980. Continuing the third "Cocktail hour with John Bubbles," which began on *MGZIC 9-5763, Bubbles and Jane Goldberg discuss the challenge of combining talking and tapping. Goldberg describes her own work The neighbor, a parody of Edgar Allan Poe's The raven. Bubbles talks about the dancer's relationship with the audience, and how to "sell" a performance; examples he cites are Fred Astaire and Baby Laurence (Laurence Donald Jackson). He also discusses his participation in the film The varsity show as half of the act Buck and Bubbles, and sings the song "Shine" from the film Cabin in the sky, in which he also appeared. This conversation continues on *MGZIC 9-5760.
