Savion Glover Rhythm Tap

This performance is expensive ($59), but well worth the cost. Savion Glover is the BEST rhythm tapper in the world. He is at the top of his game at 39 years of age. I have seen him several times and here is a short list:

He was a prodigy of Gregory Hines. He starred with Hines in several Broadway hits as a teenagers (won a Tony at 15 years old) and starred in the movie "Tap". He brought his own show to Broadway in 1996. "Bring in Da' Noise, Bring in Da' Funk" won Mr. Glover another Tony Award. He was the tap model for the penguin film, "Happy Feet". He has studied with all the great black rhythm dancers..Howard (Sandman) Sims, Honi Coles, Jimmy Slyde, Sammy Davis, Jr., etc. His goal has always been to show respect for the history of his art and mentor upcoming talent. He dances "heavy" and the action is concentrated in the lower body and the feet. His taps are simply an extension of the rhythm.

The seats I am planning to purchase are in the middle of the third category of five levels. Because of the nature of the performance, I do not want to be at "nosebleed" levels. The Cerritos Center does not contract with any discount firms such as Goldstar. We will eat dinner before the show at 6 PM at Mimi's which is located on 12727 Town Center Drive, Cerritos.

There are NO refunds for this event. If you cannot attend, you may contact somebody on the wait list. I am not responsible for finding someone to purchase your ticket.

    Savion's dance partner was Marshall Davis, Jr. They have worked closely together for years. The opening monologue was Gregory Hines speaking at the funeral of Sammy Davis, Jr. "Love that can only be danced".The show was a Hoofer's medidation and a pair of Gregory Hines tap shoes were placed on the solitary platform. The majority of the show was improvised. The show is his church, his sanctuary...a place of honor and prayer to all of his past mentors and teachers.

    Savion Glover is blessed with enormous talent, energy, and artistic integrity. At 40 years of age, he still has "legs". I can only mirror what the lady next to me kept saying: Mm, Mm, Mm.

    I probably can't go - but I just wanted to encourage anyone who has not seen him perform to go, I saw him like I think about 5-6 years ago, and he was a-ma-zing!
