World-renowned tap dancer LaVaughn Robinson, 80, of Philadelphia, died of heart failure Wednesday at Albert Einstein Medical Center.

Born in South Philadelphia in 1927, the youngest of 14 children, Mr. Robinson had said he learned the time step from his mother on the kitchen floor when he was 6.

He went on to tap in Philadelphia and on stages around the world, was named a national treasure, and taught tap at the University of the Arts for 20 years.
