Helen Levin has been dancing since age seven, and in those early years attended, in earnest, the School of American Ballet, until her Fine Art career intervened (helenlevin.com) wherein she received two degrees (MFA, BFA) in painting. She never gave up dance, though and, in 2014 performed solo for these programs: the College of Staten Island program Narrentanz with Dance to the People (Maira Duarte): Tina Kroll’s Staten Island group (The Horse’s Mouth) at Snug Harbor Cultural Center (Gabri Christa). Levin is an experienced teacher, who made her living teaching art and literary to all ages.
Jane Goldberg has been one of the key architects of the tap dance renaissance since the early 1970s. She is not only a tap icon herself, but has chronicled what living the tap life was like with in her memoir “Shoot Me While I’m Happy.” Her archives reside at NYPLibrary for the Performing Arts. The late Gregory Hines, wrote, “I think (Jane) ‘single-footedly’ brought tap back to the city.” Some of Jane’s contributions are at changingtimestap.org.
