Summary
The first segment on this tape is a television news story about The new sole sisters, a program of female tap dancers produced by Jane Goldberg at La Mama. The segment includes excerpts from interviews with Goldberg and Frances Nealy and performance clips of Nealy and Harret Browne.
The remainder of the tape contains 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. First there is a series of tap dance performance excerpts, most featuring Jane Goldberg. The remainder of the tape contains excerpts of two classes taught by Albert [Bert] Gibson. Gibson speaks to Goldberg about his childhood and career and teaches a soft shoe; the tango twist, a step invented by Jack Wiggins; and the dances "Pull it" and "Fish for supper."
