Brazilian tap dancer Leonardo Sandoval, described by the Chicago Sun-Times as “strong yet fine-boned, capable of authority and nuance,” is quickly gaining a reputation in the tap world and beyond for his musicality and for adding his own Brazilian flavor to tap dancing. An alumnus of The School at Jacob’s Pillow, he performs excerpts from his first full-length work, Music from the Sole, an hour-long show created with bassist and composer Greg Richardson. Sandoval’s choreography and performing style are rooted both in America’s tap dance heritage, and in Brazil’s rich rhythmic and musical traditions, with additional influences from jazz and contemporary dance. In addition to his solo work, he is currently performing with Dorrance Dance, touring across the U.S. and abroad.
