Savion Glover - All FuNKD' Up, The ConCert Tour

Acclaimed tap dancer and choreographer Savion Glover will launch All FuNKD' Up, The ConCert Tour at the National Theatre in Washington D.C. in February. The show will display his legendary rhythm and tapping abilities alongside a six-piece band and a small company of dancers. Everything will be an original composition, with choreography conceived by Glover.

Besides being recognized by his fast feet, Glover is known as the Tony-Award winning choreographer of musicals such as "Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk" and, more recently, "Shuffle Along." He also starred in the film "Tap," performing alongside tap legends Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis, Jr. Younger audiences may know him best as the choreographer for "Happy Feet" and "Happy Feet 2."

The tour comes at the anniversary of Glover's 35th year as a performer.
