Dorrance Dance

dorrance danceThis brilliant sentence is from the CFA:

Connecticut debut of choreographer Michelle Dorance’s combination of tap and modern dance, which is “edgy, seductive and smart” (Chicago Tribune)

This is from their event page. It’s much more interesting and actually informative.

After devoting 30 years to studying and performing tap dance, Michelle Dorrance founded Dorrance Dance / New York in 2011, and has become a contemporary tap sensation; pushing the tradition rhythmically, aesthetically, and conceptually. During their Connecticut debut, the company will feature excerpts from their critically acclaimed works SOUNDspaceETMThe Initial Approach featuring a living set that responds sonically to the dancers’ steps, and The Blues Project with music by Toshi Reagon.

A Breaking Ground Dance Series event presented by the Dance Department and the Center for the Arts. Made possible by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Expeditions Program of the New England Foundation for the Arts.
