#TBT: Bill Robinson meets Róisín Ní Mhainín and the Devane brothers!

First watch the dance routine of Bill Robinson found in "Harlem is Heaven" at 22:24

Pay close attention to 24:30, and see a smilier movement in this great video of Róisín Ní Mhainín, at 0:44

Then watch the movement at 24:55, and see the same step done by Patrick and Gearoid Devane here, starting at 18:07! (To the same tune that Róisín is dancing to, btw!) 

In the wake of recent events, SDD would like to remind our dancers, families, and supporters that it was not that long ago that the Irish in America were subject to racism, oppression, bigotry, persecution, discrimination, and hatred. There are countless articles online (like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Irish_sentiment). To show our solidarity with #blacklivesmatter, we will be featuring black dancers, artists and musicians who have been inspirational to the Irish percussive dance community.
