Jitterbug! has encouraged choreographers to reach into the future for dance steps never seen before in order for the dancical's heroes Billy Rhythm and Tharbis Jefferson to win the climatic 1931 dance contest at the legendary Savoy Ballroom. Since they are professional dancers working in a Cotton Club revue, it's also a plausible way to bring tap dancing down onto the Savoy floor, executed in tandem during the Jitterbug break. In this example by Lana Williams and Ryan Francois, we are reminded that keeping the choreography real to that period can also win the contest when both dancers can dance like this. Extending the breakaway to this length would have been a radical benchmark in itself 86-years-ago which is one of the primo ingredients for the creation and growth of art: Disruption of the status quo.
