Sandra Kluge is a tap percussionist born in Germany, based in Brooklyn, and performing and teaching internationally.

 

“one of the finest tap dancers of her generation”

- Travis Knights

 

Her performance highlights include Thomas Marek's show NOLA, the tap ahead festival, Swiss Tap Days, and various venues around NYC, including Symphony Space, LaGuardia PAC, and Judson Church.

 

She has been invited to teach at renowned facilities such as tanzhaus nrw,  tap club, and Spoke The Hub, and to be a teaching artist in residence at Thomas Marek's Studio Footprints.

 

Sandra is an alumni of the Art Omi Music Fellowship Program.

 

Her artistic works have been featured in publications such as Average Art, The Tap Love Tour Podcast, What Moves You, and Not Random Art.

 

Sandra was first introduced to tap at the age of 10 by her Mom. In the following years, she studied with greats such as Barbara Duffy, Sebastian Weber, Pia Neises, Derick Grant, Sarah Petronio, and Heather Cornell, to only name a few. She graduated from Daniel Luka's tap apprenticeship S.O.N.T.I. with magna cum laude.

 

Now, as a tap percussionist, Sandra is deconstructing the classic tap vocabulary in order to be an accompanying percussive instrument, rather than just the cherry on top.

Working on her own music, Sandra is continuously exploring the healing powers of frequency, rhythm, and energy.
