Savion, who made his mark as the lead in Broadway’s “The Tap Dance Kid,” each summer teaches young students at the NJ Performing Arts Center Arts Intensive Program, where he also serves on the organization’s board. NJPAC will present the students at Glover’s revival of “The Tap Dance Kid” in three days of performances beginning Sept 15.
“It’s my duty to tell them what’s outside these walls, and give them permission to be free, that it’s ok,” said Glover. According to Laura Marchese, DOTL Managing Director, “This is why we do arts education." Right now, according to Glover, “I am happy to be figuring out my why.”
The evening was a fitting celebration of dance as we gear up for the fall festival in September. Thank you to our hosts Barbara White and Lennon Register, and to the many DOTL supporters who came to this special event.
