About Marshall Davis Jr.
Marshall Davis Jr. was born in Miami Beach, Florida. He began tap dancing at the age of 10 at the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center. By the age of 11, he was a finalist in the Philip Michael Thomas Rising Star Competition and was the 1989 Florida winner for the Tri-Star Pictures Tap Day contest, a promotion for the movie Tap starring Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis, Jr.
At age of 13, he accepted a check from Ed McMahon for winning the coveted 1991 Star Search Teen Dance Champion. Since winning, he has performed in Europe, Japan and throughout the United States. Marshall’s dancing is most heavily influenced by his mentor, the late Steve Condos of the CONDOS BROTHERS.
