He toured vaudeville, one imagines as a song and dance man, before his success in the movies.
One of the main reason that his dancing has been so overlooked is that he became the indispensible tough guy of American movies during the 30s and 40s. From the time he hit Mae Clark in the face with a grapefruit--Public Enemy, 1931, until he was "on top of the world, Ma" as a petrochemical plant exploded behind him--White Heat, 1949 Cagney was the first choice as a vicious killer, gangster or punk. Sometimes, as in Angels with Dirty Faces, 1938, he played a hood with a heart of gold.
One aspect of his dancing style was the amout of space he covered--while some of may be camera work, he seemed to tour a very large stage without much effort.
