“WITH EACH PERFORMANCE OF DORRANCE DANCE, TAP EXPANDS”

– The New York Times

Michelle Dorrance (MacArthur Fellow and Doris Duke Artist) and her award-winning tap dance company Dorrance Dance take over the City Center stage in an electrifying program of innovative premieres, old favorites, and rarely seen repertory. Hailed for their ingenuity in both expanding the boundaries of tap dance and honoring its roots, the Company's complex footwork and elegant bodies produce intricate layers of sound, accompanied in many pieces by live musicians. Highlights of this City Center engagement include Harlequin & Pantalone, choreographed by hoofer, clown, and stage and screen star Bill Irwin; Jump Monk, by tap dance legend Brenda Bufalino; and a re-imagining of SOUNDspace, the Company’s 2013 site-specific exploration of New York City’s St. Mark’s Church. Whether you’ve loved the Company in past Fall for Dance Festivals or are experiencing Dorrance’s wild choreographic imagination for the first time, this slate of rotating repertory will blast open your notions of what tap dance can be.
