  • IN CONVERSATION WITH DERICK GRANT | www.tapdance.org
    with L J Sunshine about his life and work L J Sunshine Rail You started dancing when you were two years old and soon began performing Do you remember that at all Derick Grant I remember the little tuxedo short pants and the jacket and the afro squished by the top hat Just a whole lotta cuteness Otherwise most of my early childhood memories have more to do with family functions than they do with recitals I remember barbecues and family gatherings where the music would be cranking and the cousins would take a turn and my grandmother would do her thing with her sisters and then the kids would get up and do their thing But dancing was also the family business My grandmother helped my aunt run the studio Roxbury Center for the Performing Arts I can remember being on studio floors as a child while company rehearsals were going on constantly watching rehearsals hearing the same music over and over and learning that way before it was my turn to dance By the time I was in class it was already pretty natural because I had spent so much time around the dancers Then when I was about eight my mom moved to L A to pursue an acting career I spent the school years in Boston with my grandparents and at my aunt s studio studying with Dianne Walker In the summers I was in California with my mom and at Universal Dance Designs the studio of her childhood friends Arlene and Paul Kennedy So I was dancing all the time That was their way of keeping me busy After school I would go straight to the studio READ MORE Derick Grant Photo credit Nathan Kirkpatrick Quick Links Join the ITA Advertise coming soon Propose an
