Juba

Beth Allen says: “This is an old African American folk song that evolved from a plantation dance. It is closely linked to Hambone and is often found together in collections. Juba became a common name for African Americans who were talented at singing or dancing in the 19th century. The most famous was William Henry Lane or Master Juba, who combined African derived and European dances in his performances, including Irish jigs. He is now seen by many as the originator of tap dance.” Suitable for Key Stage 1, 2, and 3
