Tap dance artist Honi Coles reminisces about his youth, and the origins of his famous nickname "Honi." Although he never attended formal dance classes, he regularly tapped on Philadelphia street corners with his friends. Later, he competed in the local theatre on amateur nights. His first professional experience was with the Three Millers, who performed at Lafayette Theatre in New York City. He discusses the high-quality, "class-acts" of his own performances; the importance of "classy" costuming, promptness, and discipline; partnership with Cab Calloway; his later association with Cholly Atkins (from 1947-1960); his work in numerous Broadway Theatres; from 1960-1976, production manager for the Apollo Theatre; presenting master classes in schools and museums.
