After “Noise/Funk” closed, Glover asked Nemr if he wanted to do a gig with him in Florida. Nemr agreed and Glover formed a group, TiDii. Nemr was a part of TiDii’s first gig, in May of 2001, at the Cannes Film Festival. The group continued touring for more than three years, during which they toured St. Louis, San Francisco, Monaco and Seattle. Nemr was also a part of “Imprography” at the Joyce Theater in New York City and at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. In 2001, Nemr graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City with a degree in computer animation, so the career timing was perfect.
In 2003, Gregory Hines and Nemr co-founded the Tap Legacy Foundation to build a cultural center in New York City dedicated to the art form of tap. On Feb. 14, 2009, Nemr launched the group’s first capital campaign. As a benefit fundraiser, they showed the movie “Tap” in New York City. More on www.taplegacy.org.
