"Perhaps one of Nemr’s greatest contributions to tap, to be honored someday by the next generation, is his skill in making tap dance an ensemble form. [He] borrows artfully from the structures and compositions of modern dance while retaining all the spirit and individuality of tap."

"He has their trademark moves down beautifully. If you closed your eyes, you could easily picture the dancers of old on stage. The ring was authentic"

"Andrew Nemr recounted how he’d once emailed a mentor, the late, great Gregory Hines, in despair over a romantic breakup. Hines advised him to “dance it out.” Nemr gave us just that, alternately hammering and stroking the floor with all parts of his hard-soled shoes, punctuating his mesmerizing patois with outbursts of beaten jumps."
"A Masterly Tapper"
