It’s Tap, Samba, House, Live Music And You At Harlem Stage

October 7, 2021

Harlem Stage presents the world premiere of Partido by tap dance and live music company Music From The Sole.

This collaboration between choreographer Leonardo Sandoval and composer and multi-instrumentalist Gregory Richardson, explores the convergence of percussive dance and live music with contemporary African-American and Afro-Brazilian culture in what DanceTabs describes as

“a friendly conversation, their voices replaced by tapping feet, claps, snaps, and pizzicato strings. It was bliss.”

Featuring a diverse group of six tap dancers and a three-piece band (piano, saxophone, and bass) that invites the dancers to play percussion instruments at times, Partido hopes to convey tap’s essence as a crossing point for Black dance and music, especially in Harlem — a central place in tap history.

Music From The Sole gratefully acknowledges support for the creation of Partido from The Yard, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone, and CUNY Dance Initiative. Music commissioned by the Charles and Joan Gross Family Foundation.
