Thank You Gregory"Thank You, Gregory!"
A Tribute to the Legends of Tap

Wednesday, November 4 ~ 7:30 PM
Performing Arts Center, Drama Theatre
$ Tickets Required

When actor-dancer Gregory Hines passed away in 2003, the world lost one of its most influential ambassadors for the art of tap dancing. "Thank You, Gregory!" is a tribute to Hines and other
legendary kings and queens of tap who put their souls into their "soles." The show celebrates such tap-dancing greats as The Nicholas Brothers, Fred Astaire, Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, Ruby Keeler, Ann
Miller and Dr. Jimmy Slyde. Eight world-class hoofers, three jazz
musicians and multimedia projections and narratives about the history
of tap come together to make "Thank You, Gregory!" an entertaining
and poignant salute to this great form of dance.
