Unified Feet

Put politics aside and tap

In 1989, President George H. W. Bush managed to unite Republicans and Democrats under one banner on one of the most divisive issues of the day: tap-dancing. Rivals John Conyers Jr. (D-MI) and Alfonso D'Amato (R-NY) put aside their differences in joint resolutions honoring tap-dancing, which Bush signed into law on November 7, 1989, declaring May 25 National Tap Dance Day. This year, Arts Fifth Avenue's group tap-dance with live music will be a poignant reminder of the bipartisan efforts of our leaders. The celebration starts at 8 p.m. at 1628 5th Ave. in Fort Worth. Admission is free, but donations are welcome. Call 817-923-9500.
Thu., May 25, 8 p.m.
