Hillary-Marie's Sole Music Collective

Hillary-Marie’s Sole Music Collective is percussive dance at its finest – music for the soul created by the soles of the feet. Celebrating the diverse contributions of two thriving American art forms, Tap Dance and Jazz Music, the Sole Music Collective gives a visual to the rhythm we hear and a voice to the dance that we see by approaching tap dance as a musical instrument and visual performance art with live music collaborations and a strong improvisational presence to culminate in the ultimate form of storytelling. A musical odyssey shared by world-renowned musicians, the artistry of the Sole Music Collective is guaranteed to bring audience members and listeners to their feet. Hillary-Marie's Sole Music Collective is home to the Herspective Series, Soul Walk The Show and VIBE.


#Herspective is a video website series that highlights women in music as they come together to collaborate and recreate their favorite music and stories. This video web series seeks to uplift and celebrate women in music and dance by providing a platform that celebrates equality, individuality, delicacy, ferocity and everything in between.

With the Law of Vibration telling us that everything is energy, it’s safe to say that music, dance, emotions and atmosphere manifest a universal energy that can be absorbed and felt by all those who surround us. VIBE is a celebration of music and Tap dance as a universal energy and language of the world as dancers and musicians flow in and out of choreography and improvisation with the inventiveness and spontaneity that can be attained with being present and mindful of the vibrations that surround us. Featuring up to four tap dancers and four musicians, VIBE exposes the true nature of percussive dance as a form of storytelling packed with texture, movement, sound and the familiar roller coaster ride of life’s erowmotions.
