Last night on Season 11 of “So You Think You Can Dance,” audiences were treated to a rare display of tap—in a piece choreographed by none other than Anthony Morigerato, faculty member at this year’s Dance Teacher Summit. Top 20 finalists Valerie Rockey and Zack Everhart, Jr. performed Morigerato's snappy choreography, which included tapping their way up a staircase (a Bill “Bojangles” Robinson reference, perhaps?). Check out the clip below to see the full routine.
We’re excited to see tap featured on “So You Think”—it’s pretty unusual that tappers make it into the Top 20—but we’re even more thrilled to have Morigerato as part of the Summit, August 1–3. Click here to see our full Summit faculty list, including special guest Twyla Tharp.
