National Tap dance day with Petra Haller and Meg Morley

Join Petra Haller and Meg Morley at an evening of Improvised Piano and Tap dance to celebrate Bill Bojangles Robinson’s Birthday.

May 25th which is Robinson’s birthday (25/05/1878- 25/11/1949) was signed into law as National Tap dance day by George H.W. Bush on November 8, 1989 as a day to celebrate Tap Dance as an American Art form, and is now celebrated by tap dancers around the world.

Petra Haller and Meg Morley met a few years back at the Freedom of Improvisation Loft jam at the Vortex led by Cleveland Watkiss, Orphy Robinson, Tori Handsley and Paul Bradshaw and have  since then collaborated on various projects.

Classically trained from the age of two, Melbourne-born London-based musician Meg Morley was awarded Distinctions by the Australian Music Examination Board for its Associate and Licentiate diplomas in piano and completed a Masters of Music in classical performance and a Postgraduate Certificate in composition. She studied Jazz improvisation at the Victorian College of the Arts.
