Legendary Tap Dancer Arthur Duncan Visits Absinthe Las Vegas
Last night legendary tap dancer Arthur Duncan came to see Absinthe with his long time friend of 20 years, Murray SawChuck.  Murry, the headliner at Planet Hollywood, wanted Arthur to see Sean and John Scott, Vegas’ most famous tap dance team since the Nicholas Brothers (Pictured: Murray SawChuck and Arthur Duncan).

Arthur Duncan loved their performance stating, “Their feet are smoking!”

After the show, Arthur talked to the brothers and shared stories of his buddy Sammy Davis Jr. working with Sean Martin and Jerry Lewis.

Murray asked him how he got into show business and he said, “You know who gave me my first job… Betty White.”
