Felipe Galganni’s (Brazil/NYC) Tap & Tom is a concert blending tap dance and bossa nova with music direction by award winning Carlos Bauzys (Brazil). Using Tom Jobim’s compositions, we are celebrating the 60th anniversary of the creation of Bossa Nova and Jobim’s 90th birthday with an evening of tap dance and live music.

Revealing Galganni's unique Brazilian influence in his expression of tap dance The New York Times writes, "...Felipe Galganni juxtaposed the precision of tap with the curvaceousness of capoeira, the Brazilian martial art. As two crouching, cartwheeling capoeiristas and six tappers wove through one another to Baden Powell's 'Berimbau,' their musicality was contagious.”

The cast includes Jackie Ribas, Alice Reys, Christina Carminucci, Alex MacDonald, Samara Seligsohn, Juliana Suaide, Chikako Iwahori, Pedro Coppeti, Tony Romano, Vitor Gonçalves, Josh Davis, Xavier Del Castillo, Wallace Stelzer, ​and special guest Max Pollak.
