Part of the documentation of the week-long tap dancing workshop By word of foot I, presented by the Changing Times Tap Dancing Company on October 13-18, 1980. To begin his 10AM class, Leon Collins discusses and demonstrates his use of music in his dancing and teaching.

This session continues on *MGZIC 9-5736.
