Website and/or Calendar Links
MacArthur Fellow and Bessie Award-winner Michelle Dorrance is one of the most sought-after tap dancers of her generation and “one of the most imaginative tap choreographers working today” (The New Yorker). Under her direction, Dorrance Dance upholds the traditions of tap dance, a uniquely American art form, while propelling them forward rhythmically, technically, and conceptually. Dorrance and her company will perform the impulsive, visually enticing Myelination, an exhilarating ensemble piece featuring original live music by Donovan Dorrance, Gregory Richardson, and Aaron Marcellus; the rarely seen, dramatic, Bessie Award-winning Three to One; and a revival of the sassy, funky Jungle Blues with score by Branford Marsalis. "Dorrance . . . pushes the boundaries of tap while exposing its true nature: that it is music" (The New York Times).
Recommended for ages 10 and up.
