NEW YORK CITY--Woodpeckers Tap Dance Center, official residence of the American Tap Dance Orchestra
(ATDO), last fall announced its intention to close as early as January 1995.
Now, thanks to Da Capo Press, Jazz DAnce is again available, as a paperback ($16.95), augmented with a new foreword and afterword by Brenda Bufalino, artistic director of the American Tap Dance Orchestra
. Although the book takes its subject only up to 1966--when Marshall Stearns died of a heart attack shortly after the manuscript was completed--it's still essential reading for anyone interested in jazz, in dance, and in the American musical theater.
