Northrop says
This feature-length documentary offers an intimate look at an art form that's transforming itself from nostalgia to current sensation. Master hoofer Derick Grant is struggling to bring his hip, rousing show 'Imagine Tap' to Broadway, but the pitfalls of commerce, a legacy of racism, and misguided notions have kept the show in the wings.

Tap or Die weaves together arresting archival and contemporary performance footage of Grant and tap masters from around the world. Featuring an original score by Bessie Award winner and STOMP sensation Nicholas Young and interviews with living tap legends, Tap or Die is an ode to the genreā€”past, present, and future.
