Savion Glover at The Egg

Savion Glover

Tap dance king Savion Glover will be at The Egg October 15 for a performance. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday (July 15) -- they're $34 and up.

The performance at The Egg will be the premiere of a new work by Glover, "New Soundz" -- it's a collaboration with jazz saxophonist James Carter. Glover's company of dancers will also be performing and they'll be joined by Carter's quartet.

Glover is, of course, a titan of the dance world. As his mentor, Gregory Hines, said of him many years ago: "He could arguably be the best tap dancer that ever lived. He's a genius."

Most recently, Glover was nominated for a 2016 Tony for his choreographer work on the Broadway show Shuffle Along.

I just learned about the Woman's Club of Albany yesterday, during the Holiday House tour. It's a really large space that is chock full of character, and they rent it out for parties of the type Maureen is interested in.
