Savion Glover

The Palladium

There are a lot of worthy ways to spend your Friday evening.

Me, I think I’ll catch a performance by Savion Glover, the greatest tap dancer in the world. (In the view of Gregory Hines, himself no slouch, Glover is the greatest who ever lived.) How often does an opportunity like that happen?

 Even if the name isn’t familiar, you may remember Glover from appearances on “Sesame Street” (teaching Mr. Snuffleupagus—and a generation of kids—the joy of tap), on “Dancing with the Stars” (see his guest spot here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQ40aKtPlXc), or in the Broadway musicals “Bring in ’Da Noise, Bring in ’Da Funk,” “Jelly’s Last Jam,” “Black and Blue” and “The Tap Dance Kid.” He also inspired the footwork for the animated movie “Happy Feet.” Details on Glover’s appearance here
