My home is my shoes, Will

3 minutes

For an 80-year-old American jazz fan in England, to live is to tap dance

When Will Gains tap dances, he can feel his childhood in Detroit, hear the music that played at the clubs where he danced as a young man. Now an octogenarian living in England, Will dances because the music is still alive within him, and because he loves the sound his shoes make as they scratch and tap the ground. He says: ‘I don’t dance. The shoes do the dancing.’ My Home Is My Shoes, Will is a brief portrait of a man with a unique connection to music, a natural storyteller who recounts a life in dance by dancing.
