Savion Glover

Savion Glover has done just about everything you can imagine as a tap dancer, working with classical musicians, jazz, rock, and hip-hop artists from small clubs to Broadway and Hollywood. He’s even been the CGI model for a tap dancing penguin in the 2006 Happy Feet. But on this visit to Seattle, the music he’s dancing to is inside his head. In Bare Soundz, Glover, along with Marshal Davis Jr. and Maurice Chestnut, are performing the tap approximation a cappella—without musicians. By stripping away the extra layers, Glover reveals the polyrhythmic complexity that is the heart of tap dancing. SANDRA KURTZ
