Description: New York City's Most Sought After Duo, DeWitt Fleming Jr. and Jared Grimes, bring you A Comical Night of Song and Dance.


DeWitt Fleming Jr and Jared Grimes, from the critically acclaimed Broadway Underground, bring you a fun night of laughter, song, and tap dance. These two have been held as two of the premier tap dancers of their time. Together they seamlessly bridge the gap between the song and dance men of the 20's and 30's and the vibrant contemporary dance world of today. The two have danced on stages around the world in musicals such as "Riverdance", " Scottsboro Boys", " Stormy Weather", " Sophisticated Ladies", and at the Marciac Jazz Festival, Aspen Jazz Festival, Detroit Jazz Festival, and NYC City Centers Fall for Dance to name a few. They have danced as a duo and soloist with such artist as Wynton Marsalis, Christian McBride, Wycliffe Gordon, Marvin Hamlisch, and with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Princeton Symphony Orchestra, and Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks among others. This night is sure to leave audiences happily laughing and tapping their feet.

"There wasn’t a moment when musical rhythm became coarse or tedious."  ~ NY Times

"Mr. Fleming and then Mr. Grimes began to dance. Each one proved an amazement."  ~ NY Times
