Mr. Fagan challenged all the students to work very hard on their musicality, rhythm and technique... His scholarship class included an excellent warm up, and a variety of lyrical and jazz combinations. His intense yet fun teaching style inspires students with challenging choreography to popular music.

Jay Fagan's comedy set prior to his solo had the audience in stitches & his "Just in Time/Green Dolphin Street" performance showed he had quite the chops, in addition to the comedy.
Sibling Rivalry summed up the good fun with the challenge of a "Tap Off." Jay Fagan has developed a new dimension of the Stand Up Comedian with his dance impressions and one liners. Connie Fagan performed effortlessly with rippling sounds and a dare devil smile. She turns, glides, stomps with equal skill.
Jay is a phenomenal dancer, of course! But he is also a gifted choreographer, and instructor! In an extremely short turnaround time, Jay choreographed and taught my daughter several versions of a dynamic and complex tap routine that ultimately won her the opportunity to perform at a worldwide talent showcase! Just fantastic!
Jay Fagan, who began by demonstrating the styles of Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Michael Flatley and Savion Glover before launching into his own hot solo, punctuated with spins and jumps for a more theatrical effect.

He talked to the audience, eliciting laughter again and again. And he danced, stomping and sliding, skipping and tripping, his feet lightning-fast as they delivered one amazing movement after another.

Jay pushes sound and rhythm to the edge using Brenda Bufalino & Sam Weber techniques to create his own style. Jay's classes are only for those who want to push themselves to the limit.
...brought back by popular demand one of the best darn tap dancers in the business today, Jay Fagan. When you watch this "master" of the tap work you will be amazed and when he joins Acosta in the Sammy Davis, Jr. salute you too will have goose bumps. Believe me it's that dramatic.

...one of the most remarkable opening acts in the business today: The tap dancing routines of Jay & Connie Fagan. I have watched this brother / sister act perform on more than one occasion and am reminded of the late great tap masters Gregory Hines and of course my personal favorite Sammy Davis, Jr.
