Those Vaudeville performers known in the stage world as "hoofers" are enigmas even to their own guild. They generally come in pairs from nobody knows where. They are able to "stop" shows in innumerable instances with intricate dance steps and are essential ingredients of every revue. These tap dancers, off stage, have none of the strutting manners of the usual performer and seem apart from the world of Broadway. Often they create a big sensation for one season and are never seen again. They are usually in their twenties and due to exacting physical demands of "laying the leather" are mostly temperate and clean living.
