Savion Glover’s SoUNdZ.SaCRoSaNCt

June 21 - June 22, 2024

Two-time Tony winner Savion Glover returns to Joe’s Pub with SoUNdZ.SaCRoSaNCt, his latest creation of dance and theater mastery honoring the legends of “The Dance” who mentored him while exploring the intersection of self-expression and mental health.

Tap dancer, choreographer and actor Savion Glover is the epitome of a living legend. The tapping marvel has graced the stage since childhood. He set a record as the youngest person ever to receive a scholarship in the Newark Community School of the Arts. Before he was a teenager, Savion made his mark starring in the leading role in the Broadway musical The Tap Dance Kid.Glover developed his own dancing style he dubbed "free style hard core." The Tony Award winning dancer eventually worked with dancing greats Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis, Jr. Among his credits are starring roles in major motion pictures like Jelly's Last Jam, a role for which he made history as the youngest ever recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts grant.As a choreographer, Glover's work has helped maintain tap dancing as an art form in the modern dance world. His starring role in the musical Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk, which he also choreographed, debuted on Broadway in 1996. The musical chronicles events in African American history and brought Glover a Tony for Best Choreographer.Glover was made known to the younger generation with recurring appearances on “Sesame Street.” He also holds the credit as the live captured dancing motion behind Mumble the penguin in the film Happy Feet. Savion also served as co-choreographer for the film.

Produced by the Downtown Urban Arts Festival with support as part of the Coalition Theaters of Color, a New York City Council initiative to support the operations and programming of theaters and cultural organizations primarily in communities of color.
