K. Grant is one of the most amazing and inspiring tap artists. He began his training at the age of two and by the time he was eight he has learned the «hoofing» style from tap master Diane Walker. As an original company member and Dance Captain in Savion Glover's Production «Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk» he received the «Princess Grace Award» for Upcoming Young Artists as well as the «Helen Hayes Award» for Outstanding featured Actors. His recent Production «Imagine Tap» had a very successful run in Chicago's Harris Theater and «A Night Out: Tap!» toured the country for three months. Of his latest choreography and performance at the Joyce Theater in NYC the New York Times said «Mr. Grant let gusts of rhythm propel him with remarkable velocity!».
