Savion Glover gives tap dancers lesson before UIS show

Tony Award-winning tap dancer, Savion Glover, says his mother preached the importance of giving back to the community when he was growing up.

He did not hesitate, as a result, when University of Illinois Springfield officials asked him to teach tap dancing to young dancers before his performance Sunday night at Sangamon Auditorium.

“That’s how I was raised,” he said. “Be ready to give back at all times.”

The one-hour, tap-dancing workshop was held in Southeast High School’s auditorium. About 25 dancers signed up for the class to get tips from the award-winning hoofer.

Glover was featured by the State Journal-Register on October 15, 2012.
