Andrew Nemr

Mentored by Gregory Hines, Andrew Nemr is considered one of the most diverse tap dance artists today. An international performer, choreographer, educator and speaker, Andrew's work explores tap dance as a vehicle for storytelling and community building. He has played with Grammy Award winning musicians across multiple genres, founded and directed the tap dance company Cats Paying Dues, now in their 11th season, and co-founded the Tap Legacy™ Foundation, Inc. (along with Hines).

"A masterly tapper" (New York Times), Nemr's work has been recognized with a TED Fellowship, acceptance into the SupporTED Collaboratorium, grants from the National Endowment for the Arts American Masterpieces: Dance Initiative and the CUNY Dance Initiative, a FloBert Award for Tap Dance Excellence, and residencies with Quarterly Arts Soiree at Webster Hall, BRICLab, More Art's Engaging Artists program, and Surel's Place. Nemr is recorded on the Grammy nominated recording "Itsbynne Reel" by Dave Eggar, the DVD Documentary and companion album "Tuesdays at Mona's" by Mona's Hot Four, and narrates the DanceTime Publications DVD, Tap Dance History: From Vaudeville to Film. An avid public speaker, Nemr now uses the story of his journey and the craft of tap dance to speak on ideas of identity, community, faith, and love.
