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. In the third "Cocktail hour with John Bubbles," a conversation with Jane Goldberg, John Bubbles discusses various aspects of his long career as a tap dancer, including his work in motion pictures and television, how he developed and improved his style of dancing, the contrast between "uptown" (African-American) and "downtown" (white) dancers in the heyday of tap, how he learned the sand dance, and other topics.
