In Rising to the Tap, tap virtuoso Andrew 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. Mixing musically explosive footwork with autobiographical solo storytelling, Nemr candidly reveals a unique American journey through a uniquely American dance form.
