Arthur Duncan, Tap Dancer (1968-1982)
Popular Tap Dancer On Lawrence Welk TV Show
Arthur Duncan is a popular tap dancer and singer best known for his performances on the Lawrence Welk Show from 1968 to 1982.
In addition to record-setting nightclub appearances, Duncan has appeared on national television with other such legends as Bob Hope, Jerry Lewis and Red Skelton. Duncan began as a newsboy on the street corners of Pasadena and would sing the popular songs of the day and collect coins tossed his way. Taking a six-month sabbatical from Pasadena City College where he was studying to be a pharmacist, Duncan wanted to, as he says, "see what this show business was all about." He never returned to college, succeeding far beyond his expectations in night club bookings, local and national television appearances.
