On the offchance you didn’t hear that it was Gene Kelly’s birthday today, we’re sending some celebration your way! Here is just a smattering of the very best videos of our dear Mr. Kelly — one of the most athletic and graceful dancers to have ever lived and a true triple threat!!
Check out all the amazing stars who had the opportunity to share the stage with him — we’d be completely star struck if we’d ever had the chance to meet him.
Happy birthday, Mr. Kelly. Enjoy that giant tap jam up in the sky!
A happy Thursday to all of you from one of the loveliest Lovelies in the world, the brilliantly talented Miss Mint Julep!
Miss Mint Julep brings a fresh, girl-next-door kind of charm to Lady Grey’s Lovelies. She is a multi-talented dancer with extensive training in tap, jazz, ballet, and modern dance. Miss Julep has been active in the dance community in Philadelphia for a number of years, appearing in professional performances for Philadelphia Fringe, Tap Team II and The Lady Hoofers. She currently serves as Choreographer for The Lady Hoofers, and she teaches tap throughout the Philly area.
Miss Julep has studied and shared the stage with many tap masters, including: Jimmy Slyde, Dianne Walker, Heather Cornell, Roxane Butterfly, Ayodele Casel, Karen Callaway Williams, and Andrew Nemr.
Contagiously sassy, Mint Julep’s youthful energy will keep a perpetual grin on your face to the last note!

I have so much to say about the work Savion is doing and how important it is, but I don’t have time to dive in today. As his contemporary and someone who has shared studio time and the stage with him, I believe he is a key player in keeping the tap community from splitting into camps like it did in the early 20th century.
Just watch this clip from NBC last night and decide for yourself.
