In the dance world, tap is a quintessentially American form. And for dancer Andrew Nemr, it’s also a great way to tell stories.

The tap dancer recently traveled from New York to Garden City for a month-long stay at Surel’s Place. The residency is open to all kinds of artists, but Nemr is the first tap dancer to get a respite at the space.

After an interview this week at KBSX studios, the tap dancer gave Boise State Public Radio staff a short performance.

Nemr wraps up his Surel's Place residency at the end of the September.
