The heartbeat of a dream has a rhythm all of its own...Feel it in the pulse of the city streets... The syncopated sounds of the subway...Its synergy...synthesis...style. And it's alive in 'Tap', a flashy, frenzied celebration of dance set against an electrifying urban backdrop. Stellar performances from a lineup of master hoofers including Arthur Duncan, Harold Nicholas, Sandman Simms and Sammy Davis, Jr. drive the film's dazzling, contemporary soundtrack of rock, fusion and funk. Gregory Hines stars as Max Washington, a promising but disillusioned tap dancer, torn between his craft and the fast track life of a high-stakes thief.
