"The Biggest Dance; A Miracle on Concrete" 3600 tap shoes and Beth Obermeyer, North Star Press, May, 2011. The 1,801 Guinness record-breaking Tap-Dancers who opened the arts center down Hennepin Avenue get their own book, three decades coming. It's a celebration for the tappers and their friends and fans, to honor the group leaders of the day and the characters who act out the story. Includes helicopter footage; 1801 signatures; Yamagata's serigraph, "The Great Tap Festival;" a 21-piece framed memorablilia exhibit; Beth's favorite tap steps and! A stroll down Hennepin Avenue, on the sidewalk. (Red Light=Don't Dance.) It's for those who danced and for those who wonder what it was like to dance up a storm. Tap shoes and applause welcome but not required. And--a look at the sequel, also Big! Record-Breaking in the Streets and Tap-Dancing Galore--six record uprisings on thoroughfares of the Twin Cities and the tap solos with stars that followed.
