The multitalented Savion Glover is a black man that
is known for his tap dancing, choreography, and acting. He has
been in business since he was just a child. He was the youngest
person to get a scholarship in the Newark Community School of the Arts.
He had made his mark starring in a leading role in the Broadway musical
the Tap Dance Kid.
He had his own dancing style known as “free style hard core.
The Tony Award winning dancer worked with super great individuals
like Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis. Jr. He has blown audiences
away with his roles in major motion pictures like Jelly’s Last Jam.
This role earned him the National Endownment for the Arts grant,
which he made history for. He was the youngest ever recipient for that
specific grant. As a choreographer, Glover’s work has helped to
keep tap dancing as an art form in the modern dance world. He
starred in the musical “Bring in da Noise, Bring in da Funk” which
he himself choreographed. He got a Tony for best choreographer.
He has reappeared on Sesame Street numerous time.
And guess what? He’s behind the live dancing motion behind Mumble
the peguin in the Disney film “Happy Feet”. Yet again, he serves as an
choreographer. Savion Glover’s success is truly a delight. He keeps
going in the right direction and is making BIG moves in his career.
I applaud him for what he does.
