All I know about what you are going to see is that this young man, Milson Saidl, is an extraordinary tap dancer — someone who moves in real life the way we dream of doing. Lynn Redmile, the fine still photographer, took this video of Milson dancing — a kind of silent tap dancing, because he had removed his tap shoes to protect the beautiful wood floor at Frim Fram.
Milson is not only a dancer but a dance teacher and a choreographer; he lives in Prague. And here’s his Facebook page.
But first, watch him dance!
If that isn’t a wondrous Forties film routine translated into this century . . . thanks to Milson and Lynn. They’ve got rhythm!
Now, I need to know (and I am sure you do, too) what this young man is doing in New York City — aside from amazing the people around him. Can anyone explain?*
And I would again direct you to Lynn Redmile’s lovely photographs here. Lynn specializes in the Beautiful and in the apparently ordinary which reveals its Beautiful selves.
*I got a brief explanation from the source himself — Milson wrote, “I studied the International Student Visa Program at Steps on Broadway for 10 months last year. I love tap dancing and dancing in general and that is one the reasons why I have come back to New York again. There are amazing teachers, classes, tap jams in New York. I wish I could spend more time here.”
So do we, Milson! I hope that his appearances will be posted on the “NYC Swing Dancers” page on Facebook . . . he is someone to watch, nurture, and admire!
