EXTRA: 'He was one of us' / Gregory Hines birthday

Happy Birthday Gregory Hines, rightfully hailed as the greatest tap dancer of his generation (arguably of all time), the most searched tap dancer on Google, a champion of the art form of tap and an ambassador of a remarkable community of dancers. Here’s an EXTENDED OUTTAKE from Maurice Hines Movie featuring superstar hoofer Jason Samuels Smith at the #GregoryHines #BlackHeritageStamps ceremony in 2019.

As Jason says, “We have to continue to say their names.” So we invite you to say their names on this day, and every day, as we remember the tap legends who have paved the way.

We are greatly appreciative of the love and support the #TapFamily has shown our film. We are honored that So Flo Tap Festival is presenting “A Day of Tap and Conversation” in South Florida on March 4th & 8th in conjunction with the project.

This is your chance to meet a member of tap royalty, as Jason Samuels Smith dives in deep in conversation with Maurice about the life of a dancer and choreographer, being taught from a young age by the great Henry LeTang, and working alongside his younger brother, Gregory.
