An artist with pretty cool rhythmic tendencies...

One of The New York Times' "Biggest Breakout Stars of 2019", Ayodele Casel, “a tap dancer of fine-grained musicianship” (The New Yorker), has been named a 2019-2020 fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University where she will be writing her next theatrical work. Ayodele recently collaborated with legendary latin jazz composer Arturo O'Farrill premiering a show at The Joyce Theater to sold out audiences and "making a triumphant debut as a leader there" (The New York Times) in September of 2019. 

Hailed by the legendary Gregory Hines as “one of the top young tap dancers in the world,” and by The New York Times as “A tap dancer of unquestionable radiance”, Casel has steadfastly become an internationally sought after artist and powerful voice for the art form.
