Abstract:

Dancer and dance instructor Ludie Jones was born January 28, 1916 in Manhattan, New York. She became interested in tap dancing at the age of three when a family friend taught her the Charleston. At the precocious age of eleven, Jones was asked to teach tap dance in a ballet teacher’s studio. After graduating Wadley High School, she immediately joined the touring chorus line of “Lew Leslie’s Blackbirds of ’34” in England. Upon returning to the U.S. she joined the group The Lang Sisters and then went on to become a member of The Three Poms, opening for Cab Calloway and Ethel Waters. In 1984, she joined the cast of the musical revue “Shades of Harlem.” That same year, she began teaching classes for senior citizens with Ruby Wiley at the Kennedy Center which later became “Tapping Seniors.” In 2008, she was the guest of honor at the St. Louis Tap Festival.
