Jason Samuels Smith Demonstrating - HPMEmmy Award-winning tap dancer and choreographer Jason Samuels Smith was in Houston last week (Feb. 9, 2017) to give a master class on tap at the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center in Meyerland. And we wondered: could he teach all of Houston to tap over the radio?

He dropped by our Geary Performance Studio to talk with Houston Public Media’s Catherine Lu about tap, inspiring the next generation of dancers, the role Houston’s arts community can play in encouraging more professional dance, and to show off — or at least, sound off — a few moves.
