Overview

Tap dancing into new frontiers

“One of the most imaginative tap choreographers working today” – The New Yorker

Tap dancer and choreographer Michelle Dorrance doesn’t play by anyone else’s rules. As the artistic director of Dorrance Dance, the MacArthur Fellow is known for creating genre-busting work that builds on tap dance’s rich history and pushes the tradition’s rhythmic, technical, and conceptual boundaries. Audiences may recall Dorrance Dance’s joyous Festival debut and its world premiere of Delta to Dusk in 2014; the company returns to the Memminger Auditorium this season with a varied program that confirms Dorrance’s status as a true visionary: ETM: Double Down, which incorporates electronic floor boards that allow the dancers to manipulate their sounds; the exhilarating Myelination; the whimsical Jungle Blues; and Three to One, a brilliant barefoot-and-tap-shoe juxtaposition.

Program 1: ETM: Double Down
Program 2: Jungle Blues, Three to One, Myelination 

Ticket prices range from $40 to $65.
