Brian Jones has been performing and choreographing since 1975. Known for his tap dance company, the All-Tap Revue, and his partnerships with Susan Boyce (Jones & Boyce), and Donald Suthard (Street Tap), Brian has toured as a modern-day vaudevillian from Hawaii to Europe.
He has shared the bill with The Persuasions, Wally Rose, Robert Goulet, Ethel Merman, Savion Glover, and The Boston Philharmonic Orchestra.
A musical populist, Jones improvises with live musicians, or synchronizes to classic recordings — ragtime, jazz, swing, Latin, country, classical, Broadway, electronica.
Crediting his eleventh-grade English teacher with opening his eyes and ears to tap, Brian continues in the great tap tradition of handing down to the next generations this uniquely American dance form.
