In honor of LeRoy Myers birthday the Tap Legacy Foundation has announced the launching of yet another tribute website. The sixth in the ever expanding series, Copasetics.org pays tribute to one of the quintessential tap dance groups of all time. Actually established as a social club, The Copasetics would become a staple in their community and a large part of the tap dance resurgence of the 1970s and ’80s. With members that ranged from Billy Strayhorn to Pete Nugent, and honorary members that included Harold Nicholas of the Nicholas Brothers among others, there is much to be remembered and learned from the vast history of the club.
As with all the tribute websites, it is our hope that this becomes a resource for exploration and a catalyst for further investigation about the art of tap dance and its contributors.
