WORKSHOP with JOSH HILBERMAN
16. + 17. October 2021
Groomed by tap and vaudeville stars of the 1930’s, tap dance artist Joshua Hilberman has shared the stage with Gregory Hines, Savion Glover, Jimmy Slyde, Brenda Bufalino, and most every tap dancer of note.
Together with dancer/producer Drika Overton, and the German duo Tap and Tray, Josh has been creating and performing original ensemble and solo theatrical productions for nearly 30 years.
Now he's coming to Leipzig!
Josh has taught hundreds of workshops and tap festivals, including New York, Chicago, Stockholm, Vancouver, Helsinki, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Dusseldorf, etc. His deep understanding of tap dance in performance combined with a healthy sense of humor make him a fun, patient, enlightening instructor.
Hilberman’s contributions to the evolution of tap dance receive mention in the 2010 book Tap Dance America, and he has been awarded grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the US Presidential Scholars Teachers Recognition Award, and the Premi Claqueta from the dancers of Barcelona, Spain for significant contributions to the tap community.
Settled happily in Liege, Belgium, most days Josh can be found at his lovely space for tap dance, the Claquettes Club, or at home making pancakes for his son Felix and wife Stephanie. For more information: www.claquettesclub.be
