Bob Scheerer's "The Organ Grinder's Swing"
Taught by Steve Zee

Tap Level: Intermediate-Advanced

Bob Scheerer began tap dancing at age six and by thirteen was under contract to Universal Studios. He later moved on to Broadway, and was featured in Lend An Ear, Dance Me A Song, Top Banana, and The Boy Friend.

Bob transitioned to television where he became an Emmy Award winning director. His credits include shows and specials featuring Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Shirley MacLaine, Danny Kaye, and Barbra Streisand. Bob also did many jazz shows featuring such luminaries as Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Gerry Mulligan, and Billie Holiday.

In the early 1990's, Bob created this work of sheer swingin' delight -- "The Organ Grinder's Swing."

Tapping With The Masters welcomes Steve Zee (who beautifully breaks down the dance). Steve, a protege of Stan Kahn, has worked extensively with Bob Scheerer. Steve has danced with Gregory Hines and the Nicholas Brothers and has shared the stage with countless tap legends. He has been a featured soloist in the Jazz Tap Ensemble and a member of Rhapsody In Taps. Steve has performed and taught around the world and is the Executive Director of LA Ironworks.

    This was a super fun challenge

    I loved learning this fun routine full of new and tricky combinations. The instruction was easy to follow and went at a great pace.

    It's incredible

    My dear Rusty:

    You Wrote: ". . .You're gonna LOVE this one!!" Oh, wow ~ you were so right.

    It's incredible -- the routine, the instruction, the demos, the clips, the vintage clips and bloopers. No tap dancer's life is complete without this two-disk set.

    My husband, exactly one year to the month younger than Mr. Scheerer, did not want me stop the video so I could prepare dinner! And he is not a tap dancer, but loves the history of tap and musicals as much as I do.

    Thank you for filling my life with what I love. You are one very special lady.

    Choreography is awesom


    The choreography in my opinion is awesome, the turns, the use of floor, the pauses, the changes in rhythm and probably one of the best to do the instruction, Steve Zee. One hellava combination.

    Thanks again.
