La La Land, a movie musical starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, has attracted many eyes over the past few weeks. The film features a jazz-loving musician and aspiring actress who fall in love in Los Angeles. More importantly, however, the movie includes a variety of tap dance numbers and tributes to classic routines! Having two well-known Hollywood stars tap dancing has certainly caught the attention of the people of Vancouver. These light-hearted and easy-to-learn steps have been bringing people into the VanTap studio, ready to try tap dance out for themselves.
Videos teaching people the choreography to the song “A Lovely Night” have attracted hundreds of thousands of views on Youtube. Some videos have even headlined “Tap Dancing is Back in Style”. Well, we believe it never left, but the film has inspired people to get back into tap, whether they are novice or returning dancers. Since we are a non-profit dedicated to developing an awareness of tap dance, this newfound interest is welcomed with open arms!
