About Travis Knights:
Tap Dancer. Musician. Performer. Host. Creator.  Montreal native Travis Knights is realizing his dreams, pounding rhythms on wood floors all over the world. His talent and dedication have earned him audiences in Shanghai, Dusseldorf, Paris, New York, and Vancouver to name a few. His career started in 2000, when he was cast as a principal dancer in the motion picture biography of Bill 'Bojangles' Robinson with Gregory Hines and Savion Glover.  The film, entitled 'Bojangles' was choreographed by the legendary Henry LeTang.
In 2006, he was tapped to be the principal dancer in the video game adaptation of Warner Brother's 'Happy Feet'.  In 2007 and 2008, Travis participated extensively as a Tap Dance consultant for Cirque du Soleil.  
He was a featured Tap Dancer in the Opening Ceremonies to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver. In the same year he toured North America with the raucous and rowdy internationally acclaimed Australian Tap Dance show, Tap Dogs.
From 2010 to 2013, Travis jumped into the professional dance company world as a principal dancer with Tapestry Dance Company in Austin, Texas.  During his time there he was awarded the Austin Critic's Table Award for best dance artist in 2011 and 2013.  In 2014, he embarked on a self-produced world tour, filming his web series entitled รข€™The Interviews' featuring celebrated pioneers in the tap dance world.
In 2018, he worked once again with Cirque du Soleil in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum.  Later that year, he acted as the Artistic Director for the 2018 Vancouver International Tap Dance Festival.
