Dancers arent known for their smarts. Dont shoot the messenger, its just a reality. Besides, who needs to be all brainy when you know how to move? The thing is, when a dancer is intelligent, society runs the risk of hosting a superbeing we can only hope that Savion Glover continues to use his powers for good and not for evil. Gregory Hines called him the greatest tap dancer of all time, thus ending the need for anyone to ever comment on his talent again. He starred in Spike Lees Bamboozled, a movie most people cant even comprehend enough to watch it, let alone bring it to life, as well as in the huge Broadway hit Bring in 'da Noise/ Bring in 'da Funk. Committed to education, Glover appeared on Sesame Street for years. His look is classic, his taps are light-speed, and his smile is a laser beam. Lets just try to keep him happy and hope for the best.
