UK PREMIERE 

Considered by many to be the world’s greatest tap dancer, Savion Glover makes a highly anticipated return to London. After making his Broadway debut at the tender age of 12 alongside Sammy Davis Jr, Savion Glover’s mastery of tap dance saw him shoot to fame. Over the years he has worked on a truly diverse range of projects, from pop videos to Oscar-winning films - not to mention picking up a Tony Award along the way.

"Pure, full of the kind of rhythmic innovation that trips down one path, splinters off in different directions and then sweeps back home"
THE INDEPENDENT

In SoLe Sanctuary, Savion Glover's reverence for the art of tap is put on the stage in the form of a living altar where he can pay his respects to the craft that he has perfected.

Savion Glover’s unique style delivers much more than you might expect from a tap dance performance. Watching him tap out a bass rhythm with one foot and then simultaneously overlay complex riffs with the other is an awe-inspiring display of skill to behold.
