Famous tap dancer, choreographer, and actor Savion Glover is the epitome of a living legend. Born in 1973, the tapping marvel has graced the stage since childhood. He set a record as the youngest person ever to receive a scholarship in the Newark Community School of the Arts, and before he was a teenager, he made his mark starring in the leading role in the Broadway musical The Tap Dance Kid.

Early in his career, Glover developed his own dancing style he dubbed "freestyle hard core." The Tony Award-winning dancer eventually worked with dancing greats Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis Jr. Among his credits are starring roles in shows like Jelly's Last Jam, a role for which he made history as the youngest ever recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts grant.

As a choreographer, Glover's work has helped maintain tap dancing as an art form in the modern dance world. In 1996, he choreographed and debuted in the starring role in the Broadway musical Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk. The musical brought Glover a Tony for Best Choreographer. He later expanded his appeal to younger generations with recurring appearances on Sesame Street, and he holds the credits for the choreography and the live captured dancing motion behind Mumble the penguin in the Disney film Happy Feet (2006).

Glover's quick steps and amazing rhythms continue to influence the lives of young people. His production company tours across the country visiting schools, spreading enthusiasm for tap dancing and cementing his place in history.
