The evening of June 10, 1999, Michael Wilson, Discovery Dance Group's Tap Instructor loaded-up his Toyota 4Runner and headed East on I-10 to New Orleans, Louisiana. His mission: to attend Tulane University's Newcomb College "New Orleans Jazz Dance Project". These photos are a visual record of his pilgrimage to the birth place of American Jazz, New Orleans, Louisiana. On that epic voyage of discovery he met many interesting and exciting people, saw many unique and remarkable things. Recorded herein are the photos he took with his Canon Rebel-G camera, most are excellent, some are remarkable and a very few are really awesome, dude!

Everyone was impressed with the great facilities at Tulanes' Newcomb College, especially the studios at McWilliams Hall!








Michael & Buster

What a wonderful opportunity for Jazz & Tap enthusiasts!

Just to be in the company of these Masters was a great experience!

Young, and not so young alike, all enjoyed the warmth and hospitality offered by Newcomb College's Beverly Trask, her staff and volunteers.

It was a rare treat to be so far from home and feel "at home", but that is the nature of Jazz Dance and New Orleans!

In closing....

If you've never been to Louisiana, gone down the Mississippi, to the town of New Orleans, you have missed a major event in your life! And to be there in the company of such warm and wonderful people as Jimmy Slyde, Jeannie Hill, Buster Brown and Brenda Bufalino is like dying and going to Heaven with a New Orleans' Jazz Wake!

All the rest of you Tappers out there, send Beverly Trask at Newcomb College an email, let her know you saw this webpage and want to be notified about next year's schedule of events. We wouldn't miss it for the world!
