Legendary tap dancer, Savion Glover, will return to the Paramount Theater in Charlottesville, VA for one night only, on Wednesday, November 20 at 8:00 PM. Savion's shows are known to dazzle audiences around the world with what the New York Times refers to as "...magical, unstoppable feet."

Savion Glover is a Tony-winning hoofer, choreographer and producer. The critically-acclaimed Savion has been dubbed "the best tap dancer ever." His numerous credits include the Broadway shows The Tap Dance Kid; Black and Blue; Jelly's Last Jam; and Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk, and the films Tap with Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis Jr.;Bamboozled by Spike Lee; and Happy Feet, an Academy Award winner choreographed by Glover.

His show at the Paramount promises to be dazzling for young and old alike. A recent review of his show by The New York Times reads: "When (the music) stops everyone freezes, but there's an unsettling rattle that takes a moment to place. It's Mr. Glover's toe, just his toe. And then, as Miles Davis's "Flamenco Sketches" fades in and the other dancers gradually back away, Mr. Glover's solo blossoms - adding first a heel, then the other foot - into a dance of intense beauty."

Tickets, on sale now, may be purchased online or at the Box Office, located at 215 East Main Street, Charlottesville, VA.

Prices:
$39.50, $44.50, $59.50
