About Max Pollak:

Max Pollak is a masterful artist who crafts dance with his body, music with his limbs, and song with his voice. His performances, known for their innovation, blend his Austrian heritage—evident in his yodel-infused German solo show "All In One"—with groundbreaking fusions of Afro-Cuban and American tap rhythms. The founder of the globally touring RumbaTap, Pollak has been celebrated for adding a traditional twist to contemporary Austrian folk music and for his dynamic collaborations in the off-Broadway hit "Carmen, to Havana and Back."

A faculty member at Sarah Lawrence College and Drew University, Pollak has been praised for his original a cappella vocal arrangements and his unique integration of tap into symphonic and chamber music. His distinguished career includes initiating Cuba’s first tap festival, collaborations with Cuban rumba masters, jazz greats, and tours with prominent percussion and tap ensembles. Pollak also brings a touch of the avant-garde to classical music, performing with acclaimed orchestras in iconic venues from Vienna's Konzerthaus to Havana's Teatro Nacional.

Renowned on the international tap scene, Pollak holds honors such as the Flo-Bert and Hoofer Awards, a Bessie Award nomination, and fellowships for his choreographic excellence. His artistry is not just a performance but an experience, inviting audiences to witness the transformative power of the body as an original instrument.
