Derick has been tapping for 28 years. Under the direction of two-time Tony Award winning director George C. Wolfe, he was an original company member and Dance Captain for BRING IN DA NOISE, BRING IN DA FUNK, at both the Public Theater and on Broadway. Most recently, he was the tap choreographer for the tv hit “So You Think You Can Dance?”

Mr. Grant trained at The Roxbury Center for the Performing Arts, the Universal Dance Design Studio in LA, and has toured the world with the Jazz Tap Ensemble. He is the recipient of the Princess Grace Award for Upcoming Young Artist, The Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Featured Actor for his role in NOISE/FUNK and also received two Los Angeles Ovation Awards for the recreation of NOISE/FUNK’s original choreography and for Best Ensemble Performance.

In an effort to celebrate, nurture and cultivate the future of the language and art form of tap, Mr. Grant liberally teaches. He is a faculty member of STEPS ON BROADWAY in NYC. He also teaches private lessons for beginners, professionals and master classes around the country. Derick created “Imagine Tap” which was commissioned to run in NYC starting in 2011.
