Music From The Sole is a tap dance and live music company that celebrates tap’s Afro-diasporic roots, particularly its connections to Afro-Brazilian dance and music, and its lineage to forms like house dance and passinho (Brazilian funk). Led by Brazilian dancer/choreographer Leonardo Sandoval and by bassist/composer Gregory Richardson, their work embraces tap’s blend of sound and movement, incorporating wide-ranging influences like samba, passinho, Afro-Cuban, jazz and house.

As part of the CUNY Dance Initiative, Music From The Sole will hold an Open Rehearsal on April 27 to offer us a behind-the-scenes look at select works they are currently creating. Join Us!
