"I'm going to dance, dance, dance til I can't dance no more!" - Bertye Lou Wood (age 96). Meet the Silver Belles, five tap dancers who performed in 1930́s Harlem at the famed Apollo and Cotton Club, with legendary band leaders like Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington. They have rich stories to tell about the history they made during the Harlem Renaissance, illuminated by a treasure trove of archival film and photos. Together again, after a few decades hiatus, they're dancing to standing ovations - as sassy as they ever were! "THRILLING! The Silver Belles are bold, brash and gorgeous."- Village Voice. "MARVELOUS! A real treasure." - The New Yorker. "Fabulous heroines, extraordinary energy...they charm!" - New York Daily News. "TRULY ASTOUNDING, awe-inspiring and delightful!" - New York Sun.
