In April of 2017, Felipe Galganni & Company premiered the concert TAP&TOM at The Players Theatre in New York. With musical direction by the award-winning Carlos Bauzys (Brazil), the performance blended Felipe's original tap dance choreography with the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim's bossa nova. The sold-out show honored what would have been Tom Jobim's 90th birthday and the 60th anniversary of the creation of bossa nova, incorporating Jobim's composition in a celebration that included both live musicians, singers, and dancers.
We were thrilled to perform TAP&TOM at the Theater of the 14th Street Y on February 2018 with a sold out run! Excerpts of TAP&TOM will be presented at Dance Off The Grid at the Emelin Theatre on May 12 at 8pm.
