Quotes & Highlights
“To see Mr. Glover dance is to see a virtuosic and authentic artist at work.” -The New York Times
“The greatest tap-dancer to ever lace up a pair of tap shoes.”-Gregory Hines
There are precious few artists who embody, redefine and radically expand their art form, but choreographer and tap dancer extraordinaire Savion Glover attained his singular status by the age of 20. Only 12 when he made his Broadway debut in The Tap Dance Kid, Glover starred alongside mentor Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis Jr. in 1989’s Tap, his film debut.
A regular on Sesame Street from 1990–95, he became a cultural phenomenon in 1996 when George C. Wolfe showcased his dazzling rhythmic dexterity in the musical Bring in ‘da Noise, Bring in ‘da Funk. In his last SFJAZZ appearance, Glover proved to be a formidable foil for piano legend McCoy Tyner. His latest project, the Coltrane-inspired Savion Glover and The Otherz, takes another major step in turning tap dance into a frontline jazz instrument.
