"An all-out tap sensation . . .intoxicating."
-The New York Times
Winner of the 2009 Dance Magazine Award, Jason Samuels Smith is a spectacular tap artist who burst onto the scene when, at age 15, he dazzled audiences after joining the cast of Bring In ‘Da Noise, Bring in ‘Da Funk. Smith will make his Portland debut with his group A.C.G.I. (Anyone Can Get It), featuring some of today’s most gifted tap dancers. Selling out two weeks at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in summer 2009, Jason Samuels Smith and his impressive young company, accompanied by a live band, will perform a compelling evening of tap that is original, complex, precise, and most of all, absolutely thrilling.
