Master of ceremonies Reggio "The Hoofer” McLaughlin leads you through a rousing celebration of footloose and fancy free tap dancing. This year's spectacular features special guest tap star Arthur Duncan known for his regular appearances on the Lawrence Welk Show from 1964 to 1982 and his performances as a regular on Betty White's 1954 daytime television talk show. Expect a rousing evening of tap inspired by the Prohibition era, classic Vaudeville, and the Big Band swing of the Roaring 20's, accompanied by the lively beat of musical director Sid Brown and many guest performers.
