Harry Swift, eldest son of Grant Swift, is an accomplished young tap dancer. Born into the Melbourne tap community, he was learning to tap before he could walk and has performed professionally in Melbourne since he was a young child. At the age of 5, he wowed audiences at the Melbourne concert hall, trading rhythms with musical virtuoso Mel web, and he has continued to perform on stage and screen, working with some of Melbourne’s finest Jazz musicians. Most recently, Harry joined Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox, as the tap dancer for their NewZealand Tour. Harry’s musical and tap education have been rich, having traded with musicians such as Lamine Sonko and jazz legend Bob Sedergreen and studied with contemporary tap greats such as Jason Samuels Smith, Brenda Buffalino, Dormeshia Sumbry Edwards, Joseph Wiggan, Josette Wiggan, Chloe Arnold and more. He continues to work as a teacher and performer, and can often be found hitting the boards on Melbourne streets as one half of The Swift Brothers act, with younger brother Oscar.
