    Only sometimes, not always. They usually did it in films because when dancers were moving around they were kicking different surfaces producing different quality of sounds or there were technical problems with the microphones and a very elaborate scene could not be repeated for the 20th time, so then they dubbed the sound of the taps. Imagine those routines with lots of dancers and chorus boys/girls, sometimes it took a whole day to shoot just 2 minutes were everybody was perfect, and then you have the sound of 2 or 3 taps not very well recorded from the main tap dancer. It was easier to re-record.

    Is it true that after the scene was finished they would dub in the tap sounds?

    Hey thanks! I only found yesterday that she was a really good cabaret artist. I hope to add more Eleanor Powell videos soon, more people need to know about her. Nowaday dancers could learn a few things from her.
