Details of Savion Glover and the Ticket Luck value
Savion Glover’s mission is to restore tap dancing as an authentic art form while preserving his African American heritage in the act at the same time. Considered to be one of the best tap dancer in the world by the great Gregory Hines, Glover made the wise decision of not indulging into the mainstream media and carved out a niche of his own. According to Glover, this not only liberated him as an artist but also as a performer. An artist who insists on paying tribute to the legends, Glover shows are intense, entertaining and an education for anyone who is curious about the art of tap dancing.
Glover from an early age showed keen interest in music and dancing. Hailing from an athletic and musical background, Glover’s great grandfather was a baseball player while his grandfather was a big band pianist and vocalist. However, it was his grandmother Anna Lundy who noticed Glover’s affinity for music and performance. Glover believes that tap dancing is an integral part of the African American heritage. Fearing drums might instill a rebellious streak; plantation owners banned African American slaves from owning any drums during the civil war era. Instead, slaves started using their feet to make a hard thumping sound. This gave birth to an art form which is revered and admired by millions around the world today.
Although, Glover respects and admires Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire, he believes that the true art of tap dancing was lost when these performers started incorporating other forms of dance in their act. This led to the creation of what is known as the ‘Broadway style’ which is more mainstream and recognizable. Having choreographed notable pieces like 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk’, Savion Glover's Nu York, and for the HBO movie, The Rat Pack, Glover stresses on the importance of the relation between the rhythm and the beat. The core of tap dancing remains, being able to express yourself by the tap and the rhythm of the beats.
Savion Glover made his debut on Broadway in 1985 in the ‘The Tap Dance Kid’ when he was only 10 years old. This marked the start of a successful career in performing arts as he performed in other notable productions such as ‘Black and Blue’ in 1989, ‘Jellys Last Jam’ 1992, and ‘Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk’ in 1996. He is the recipient of the prestigious Tony Award, Dance Magazine Award and is the youngest performer to receive the National Endowment for Arts Grant in 1992 in its history. He also has been part of several appearances in TV Specials and movies. Savion Glover also lent his talent to the 2006 movie ‘Happy Feet’, which was a huge international success grossing more than $ 380 million worldwide at the box office.
