It wouldn’t have happened without Zdenek.
If he hadn’t followed his dream of learning to tap….
If he hadn’t starred in the cult film Swing Kids…
If only he hadn’t decided to learn swing not just as a performance for the film, but so that he could dance with other swing dancers from abroad….
If he hadn’t started Zig-Zag….
…. Then the world (at least our Prague tap-dancing and swinging world) would probably look completely different than the one we know. Thank you!
