“The most promising news of recent years has been the emergence of Michelle Dorrance.” – Dance Magazine
Dorrance Dance honors the uniquely beautiful history of tap dance—America’s longest-standing indigenous jazz vernacular—in a new and compelling context. Incorporating street, club and experimental dance, the company pushes the form rhythmically, aesthetically and conceptually. Superstar tap dancer/choreographer and 2015 MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipient Michelle Dorrance grew up performing with the North Carolina Youth Tap Ensemble and has since appeared in STOMP and with the
companies of Savion Glover and Jason Samuels Smith, among many others. ETM: Double Down, a collaboration with dancer/choreographer/musician and fellow STOMP veteran Nicholas Van Young, pioneers a system of sampling the dancers’ steps as part of the sound score.Performance Benefactor
