Jelly Germain is no stranger to the UK Boogie Woogie Festival. He is an internationally recognised tap dancer, performer and choreographer, whose interpretations of the music have always wowed festival audiences. He has danced in many well-known shows such as “Sophisticated Lady”, “Riverdance”, “A Night at the Cotton Club” and “Black & Blue”, as well as his own creations, “Mr Bojangles” and “Harlem Swing”.
Jelly continues to tour worldwide, from Holland to China and the USA, either as a solo performer or with his dance partner, Caroline Podetti. Together they have established Compagnie Showtime Dance 20’s, focusing on the decade rich in showmanship, music and elegance.
Jelly’s energy and enthusiasm is infectious and he continues to teach and inspire youngsters to share his passion for dance in France and all over Europe. Jelly and Caroline will host Tap Dance Workshops on Saturday at the Chivrick Room in the Exchange and will feature in the Speakeasy concert at the Stour View Centre Hall on Friday and at the Stour Hall at the Exchange on Saturday night.
