Savion Glover: SoLe Sanctuary [CONCERT]
Before trappers, there were tappers. Fred Astaire, Bill Bojangles, Sandman Sims to name a few... I idolized their ability to make music and dance at the same time. So much so I used to pretend I was a tap dancing star in my church shoes. Time has moved on and now here is an opportunity to see on my favourites live!
NOW Magazine presents Savion Glover: SoLe Sanctuary Saturday, April 20, 2013 at Koerner Hall
Gregory Hines called him "the greatest tap-dancer to ever lace up a pair of tap shoes." The New York Times raves, "to see Mr. Glover dance is to see a virtuosic and authentic artist at work." He performed on Broadway as a child and has appeared in numerous movies, TV shows, and music videos. He won a Tony Award for Bring in ’da Noise/Bring in ’da Funk and has choreographed the dance moves forHappy Feet and other movies. In a tribute to his idols, hoofer Savion Glover performs an all-new concert where his reverence for the art of tap is put to the stage, in the form of a living altar where he pays his respects to the craft that he has perfected. "Barebones and pure, full of the kind of rhythmic innovation that trips down one path, splinters off in different directions and then sweeps back home." (The New York Times)
