Almost two decades ago, I saw tap dancer/choreographer Ayodele Casel perform in Savion Glover's dance troupe Not Your Ordinary Tappers. (N.Y.O.T.) I was so excited to see a big article about Ayodele in a recent issue of The New York Times, and learned that she had recently performed a one woman show called "While I Have the Floor." Here is an excerpt from that show, where she shares what it's like to be a woman and a person of color in the world of tap.
Stay tuned for my interview with Ms. Casel!
