A dance battle staged between the pioneering 1980's hip-hop crew the New York City Breakers and seminal 1940's tap group Tip,Tap, and Toe. The cultural matrix between tap and hip-hop emerges through this collision, involving an inverted audio track that has the breakers moving to the beats of tap, and the tappers dancing to the scratch rhythms of turntablism.

Tap Hop is part of The Lessons, an ongoing series of works that investigate the formal, historical and conceptual connections between disparate cultural moments.
