This documentary dance- and musicfilm narrates the exciting life story of Ray Lynch, New Yorker tap dancer and vocalist.
At the height of his career, in the 1960s, Ray is sent to Stuttgart as a soldier. Hence, he makes a virtue of necessity: he simply takes the faraway Broadway along with him to Germany, or rather to the Swabian metropolis, Stuttgart. In 1975, together with his wife Sabine Lynch, he sets up the “New York City Dance School”. Before long, he not only provides dance enthusiasts with lessons, but he also instructs superstars like Ute Lemper. In 1998, his commitment to dancing causes him to arrange a Tap-o-Mania, which earned him an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records, thereby eclipsing a previously established record in New York.
It is Ray’s life’s work to teach people how to dance and, apart from the dancing steps and a feel for music and rhythm, to convey warmth, devotion and a positive zest for life.
