The project started around 2012 by choreographer and performer, Chloé Arnold and teacher and performer Maud Arnold. The production team was led by Emmy Award winning executive producer Dean Hargrove and producer Jeff Peters who created the acclaimed tap dance short film TAP HEAT. Dean Hargrove directed TAP WORLD and Steven Poster, ASC was Producer/Supervising Director of Photography.
In order to acquire the necessary footage of dance and interviews around the world, the production team created a website portal to receive submissions - a casting call, if you will- to be reviewed under the strict guidelines set by the producers. After months of traveling and screening submissions, the results were amazing. A vibrant compilation of two generations of tap dancers, each of them with their own original style and identity, yet all of them dance in perfect sync regardless of age, race, place of origin and geographic location.
The language of music is rhythm and rhythm is tap...toe stand..stomp...jump..!
