A Remembrance
We celebrate the life of Al Heyward, who passed away March 31, 2020. As a co-chair of the The New York Committee to Celebrate National Tap Dance Day from its beginning, Al dedicated untold hours to the Committee’s efforts to produce Tap Extravaganza® and promote the art of tap dancing.

We will take his vision on with us and thank him for the guidance, love and dedication he has given us.
