The Egg Center for the Performing Arts • Albany, NY

Cartier Williams is a hoofer, choreographer, filmmaker, and performer hailing from Washington, D.C. He began his tap dancing career at the age of four and has been active in the tap dance community ever since, tapping at places from the White House to Zurich and many places in between.

Throughout his career, Cartier has had the opportunity to dance with a multitude of tap pioneers and masters, including Gregory Hines, Savion Glover, Peg Leg Bates, and the Nicholas Brothers. At age 13 Cartier toured internationally in the Broadway hit Bring in ‘da Noise, Bring in ‘da Funk.

A protégé of Savion Glover, Cartier Williams will be at The Egg on Friday night to tell the story of the evolution of modern tap dance – from Flash, Buck & Wing and Hoofing – in Rhythm Refix with a company of six hoofers and music ranging from jazz to hip-hop.
