Tap Dancer Julie Palmer

Listen Now:


Springfield Tennessee native, Julie Palmer, was literally raised in her mother’s dance school, The Ann Carroll School of Dance. And as a child, she was particularly drawn to tap dancing. Palmer went on to study tap in New York, Orlando, Los Angeles, and Atlanta, until finally settling back down in Springfield and teaching at her mother’s school. In the late 1980’s she was invited to teach in New York at the Broadway Dance Center, where she performed with Gregory Hines, and Savion Glover

Her tap choreography has won numerous national awards and her students have performed everywhere from Disneyworld to the White House. As part of our ongoing series ‘Playing in the Band’, Julie Palmer explains that tap dancing is not only a form of dancing, but is an instrument as well.
