SAVION GLOVER W/ OUT'KNIGHTZ - cancelled

Tap Dance & Jazz
SAVION GLOVER W/ OUT'KNIGHTZ
JUL 9-12 | DANCE & RHYTHM

The Tony-winning Glover is "the greatest tap virtuoso of our time, perhaps of all time" (The New Yorker). The dancer returns with his newest project -- a uniquely flexible improvising trio featuring saxophonist Jalin Shiver and drummer Malachi J. Lewis.

Beginning as a prodigious student of the great Honi Coles and the late Gregory Hines, who called him "possibly the best tap dancer that ever lived," Savion Glover has been boldly breaking new ground for over 25 years. Only 12 when he appeared on Broadway in The Tap Dance Kid, Glover made his film debut alongside Hines and Sammy Davis Jr. in 1989's Tap. He received a 1992 Drama Desk nomination for his appearance in Jelly's Last Jam on Broadway, and became a cultural phenomenon in 1996 when George C. Wolfe showcased his dazzling rhythmic dexterity in Bring in 'Da Noise/Bring in 'Da Funk (which earned Glover a Tony Award for Best Choreography). There are precious few artists who embody, redefine, and radically expand their art form, but Glover stands tall as an elemental creative force who has returned tap to its roots while opening up vast expanses for fresh exploration.
