TWO DAYS OF TAP WITH A MASTER

MARCH 7 & 8

Revision of original schedule
 

Tony Award-winning choreographer and legendary tap master Savion Glover returns to Jackson Hole to teach two days of open level tap classes March 7 & 8 in our Dancers’ Workshop studios. Fellow hoofer Marshall Davis, Jr. will join him and share the art of tap. 

Savion loves to teach multi-generational classes. Make it a family affair! With a minimum age of 8 years old, you can tap into your child's adventurous side. Savion's own path began as a young child. Born with an affinity for rhythm, he first explored rhythm through drumming lessons at age four. A mere three years later, Savion began tap lessons, and the rest is history! 

If you have ever wanted to try tap, why not try from the world’s greatest living hoofer!

Savion "could arguably be the best tap dancer that ever lived. He's a genius." -Gregory Hines
