Savion Glover STePz into Schaefer Center
With unmatched energy and the ability to take tap dancing to a
whole new level, Savion Glover is hailed as “America’s tap master.”
On Friday, Nov. 15, at 8 p.m., Savion Golver’s STePz will take over the stage at Appalachian State University’s Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts.
Of Glover, The New Yorker writes, “There is nothing boring about his dance making, and watching his latest piece is like going on every ride at the carnival.”
STePz fuses traditional music selections with Glover’s self-proclaimed tap style, unpredictability and energy. To watch videos and get more information on the Nov. 15 event, visit http://pas.appstate.edu/schedule/id/283.
