Dance is the hidden language of the soul.

Ever have something you’ve always wanted to do? For many years now, I have wanted to see Savion Glover perform in person. October 4th I did something about it by attending Bare Soundz in concert at The Performing Arts Center of Purchase College. Mata Hari said:

The dance is a poem of which each
movement is a word
.

Savion Glover is a tap dancer extraordinare who makes words with his feet, conjures images with his sounds, and provokes feelings and emotions with his taps.

In 1998, when Glover was in his late twenties, 60 Minutes did an interview with him. You can watch and listen to part 1 and part 2, or you can read a partial transcript. In the interview, Glover talks about

the dance as a way of expression…of voice 

Judge for yourself in this Savion Glover tap exhibition ~
