Tap Virtuoso at Tribeca Performing Arts Center

The Flying Carpet Theatre presents "Rising to the Tap," a dance concert mixed with autobiographical solo storytelling by tap virtuoso Andrew Nemr. Through his 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.
