"SAVION GLOVER (hoofer, father, husband) Praise Almighty God. Please enjoy the evening."
An artist's bio is their place to say (almost) anything a they would like the audience to know about them as a person before the curtain rises. For an artist like Savion Glover, one line is all you need. The rest he'll show you onstage.
Glover's abbreviated bio is not for lack of projects, performances, accolades and stellar reviews. He's been tapping in a big way since he was a kid, christened by his teacher, the legendary Gregory Hines as, “the greatest tap dancer that ever lived.”
Glover is a Tony-winning choreographer and performer with numerous credits including the Broadway shows The Tap Dance Kid, Black and Blue, Jelly's Last Jam, and Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk. He's been in films such as "Tap" with Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis Jr and "Bamboozled" by Spike Lee. He even won an Academy Award for his choreography of Mumbles, the tapping penguin in "Happy Feet Two." He has his own production company, founded a school for tap called The Hooferz Club in New Jersey, and even if you have never seen tap live, you might recognize him from special appearances on "Sesame Street" and "Dancing with the Stars."
When it comes to Savion Glover, we'll let his feet do the talking. Tickets for SoLe Sanctuary are $28 and great seats are still available for what promises to be a stellar performance.
