Tap Dancer Travis Knight
Hello and welcome to episode 22 of Sing! Dance! Act! Thrive!
My guest today is tap dancer extraordinaire Travis Knights who is in the Soulpepper Theatre Company's brand new concert, The Promised Land: Steinbeck Through Song running July 12-27 in Toronto. This concert reimagines the music from Bruce Springsteen, Nina Simone, Sam Cooke, Bob Dylan and more to illuminate the works of famed novelist John Steinbeck and the search for The Promised Land through song and dance.
Travis’s professional career started in 2000, when he was cast as a principal dancer in the motion picture biography of Bill 'Bojangles' Robinson with Gregory Hines and Savion Glover*. The legendary Henry LeTang choreographed the film. He shares what first inspired him to get into tap and what it was like to work with these legendary performers.
Travis is so passionate about tap that you will be inspired to follow your own passion no matter what it is as he believes that you have a responsibility to follow it. We also talk about his podcast The Tap Love Tour and some of the amazing guests that he has had on the show and how they have inspired him.
