Cholly Atkins: The Man Who Taught Motown How to Dance
Kirk Silsbee, Los Angeles Reader, 20 January 1995
CHARLES "CHOLLY" ATKINS has had two careers, and he has flourished in both. In the golden age of tap, he was half of one of the longest-running and most prestigious duos, Coles & Atkins, with his late partner, Charles "Honi" Coles. His second profession, as choreographer for R&B vocal groups, continues to this day.
