Michèle Drees Jazz Tap Project at EFG London Jazz Festival

  • Royal Albert Hall Kensington Gore London, England, SW7 United Kingdom (map)

The Michèle Drees Jazz Tap Project is a spectacular mix of rhythm, tap dance and jazz. This project works towards helping the revival of the iconic ‘jazz tap’ that originated in Harlem, and then became popularised on Hollywood’s silver screen.
Leader of London Tap Jam's house trio for over 7 years, Michèle Drees is an established drummer, Latin percussionist, vocalist, guitarist and composer. She has been active on the music scene for over 30 years, and during this time she has played with artists including Marc Almond, Kirsty MacColl, Ive Mendes, KD Lang, Badmarsh and Shri and Susanne Vega to name a few.
Michèle will be joined on stage by Scott Cripps, one the UK’s foremost tappers and Lisa LaTouche, a New York-based tap dancer and choreographer recently seen in Shuffle Along on Broadway and Savion Glover’s Stepz.
