Andrew Nemr: Rising to the Tap

In Rising to the Tap, a dance concert mixed with autobiographical solo storytelling, tap virtuoso Andrew Nemr candidly reveals a unique American journey. With musically explosive footwork, Nemr shares episodes from his immigrant history — his family’s departure from Lebanon in 1976, adapting to life in New Jersey, his eventual mentorship under legends Savion Glover and Gregory Hines — and his struggles with loneliness, bullying, and cultural identity. Described as “A masterly tapper” by The New York Times, Andrew Nemr is considered one of the most diverse tap dance artists today. Andrew Nemr’s residency at BMCC Tribeca PAC is part of the CUNY Dance Initiative.
