The Harriman-Jewell Series will present master tap-dancer Savion Glover and ensemble performing STePz at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 25, in Helzberg Hall, Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts (1601 Broadway), downtown Kansas City, Mo. Glover was previously presented by the Harriman-Jewell Series in 2006, performing Classical Savion.

For his new creation called STePz, Savion Glover returns to the Series with friends. Glover and his ensemble of dancers take tap to new heights while fusing traditional music selections with his self-proclaimed tap style and energy.
STePz exposes Glover’s capability in all complexities of jazz phrasing—bass line and melody, wild improvisations, structures and deconstruction—from departure to return. STePz showcases the infinite versatility of a virtuosic tap genius. “The result is a tight show with some of the most skillful tap you’ll ever see,” proclaimed The New York Post.

Savion Glover is a Tony Award-winning hoofer, choreographer and producer. 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.; and Bamboozled by Spike Lee. The Academy Award-winning animated feature Happy Feet and its sequel were both choreographed by Glover.

Emanuel Ax has played for the Series 12 times, including a November 2010 benefit recital in tribute to the Series’ late founder Richard Harriman.

For his next Series appearance, the venerable pianist will return to the place where the Series began: John Gano Memorial Hall on the William Jewell College campus in Liberty, Mo.

“His greatness, his overwhelming authority as musician, technician, and probing intellect emerges quickly as he plays.” —Los Angeles Times

A 12th Series appearance by Kansas City native son David Parsons’ namesake company further galvanizes a hometown relationship that has spanned more than 25 years.

The athletic and exuberant NYC-based Parsons Dance includes eight full-time dancers and a repertory of more than 80 works by Parsons.

“The Company’s accuracy and teamwork are a tribute to Parsons’ commitment to keeping the dancers fully employed and performing together 40 weeks a year, a rarity in the hard-pressed modern dance world. That commitment pays off handsomely on stage.” —Newsday
