    Sammy couldn't tap dance w/the African rhythm 3:44 WHY? So tap dance is a white dance, not black.

    For those of us old enough to remember and those young enough to have missed a great entertainer

  27. Brian Turner says:

    Its one thing to 'do it all' well enough to be cast, or well enough not to embarrass yourself when its called for.  Its another to  do it all WELL.    He did it all WELL.  As a singer or a dancer, he was exceptional.  This is not just talent.  Can you imagine the hours of practice and time  it takes to keep your voice sharp, learn new songs,keep  your steps agile and learn the routines, your comic timing down learn your lines, and your impressions fresh?  Each discipline requires hours upon hours of constant work to stay at the top of your game.  There are only 24 hours in a day.

    He really was a huge entertainer. I love his tap dance. I remember I wanted to learn how to tap Dance, and Flamenco Castanets, and I couldn't because my mom was not affiliated to the communist party, the ONLY party in Cuba,

    The "socialist party of Fidel Castro. I remember my girlfriends in the 3rd floor in the building did, and were trying to teach me and even let me practice with her castanets, but with time and the division of political issues, our parents, we grew apart. Then I came to Cuba. Mom why didn't you at least did volunteer ? I asked myself., then I understood.

    I always loved Tap dance !!! I just read about the roots of it and thanks the encyclopedia, I learn something today.
