On June 28, 2010 after seeing an amazing performance of Savion Glover’s latest show “Sole Power” at the Joyce Theater, legend of dance and the silver screen, Mr. Ben Vereen was in attendance!  Ben Vereen won a Tony Award for “Pippin” in 1973 and has starred in films such as “Sweet Charity” and “All That Jazz.”  His latest show “Mama, I Want To Sing!,” is due to hit the Broadway stage later in 2010.  He was extremely nice when I approached him to take a photo and I thank him kindly for the opportunity.

Savion Glover is not just a dancer.  His moves defy words and gravity!  On June 28, 2010, I attended his latest show “Sole Power,” at the Joyce Theater in New York and it was absolutely incredible.  I saw Savion Glover a couple of years ago and at the conclusion of the performance, I made a mental note to see him every time he comes around. He tears up the stage and his electrifying moves make you believe in a higher power.  When he dances, you can almost see the creative spirit funnel down from the heavens and come out through his body.  He makes dancing look so easy and it’s hard to watch him and not have your jaw drop to the floor in awe.  He even performs to Radiohead’s “Weird Fishes!”  I met him moments after his performance and he was super cool.  Tonight was extra special as another dancing legend, Mr. Ben Vereen was in the audience.  More on my encounter with him coming soon, so stay tuned!

Savion Glover’s show “Sole Power” is playing through July 10, 2010 at the Joyce Theater and if you are in the New York area you’d be foolish to miss this show!  Thanks again Savion for an inspiring performance and for being a really nice guy!
