STG Presents Dorrance Dance at The Moore Theatre on April 7, 2018.

DORRANCE DANCE highlights the traditional elements of tap dance in a contemporary light with an exciting program featuring three innovative works: "Three to One," a unique blend of tap and modern dance; "Jungle Blues," a high-energy display of heel stomps, shoulder shimmies, and acrobatic splits and flips; and “Myelination," an ambitious work featuring 12 dancers and a full instrumental band.

Program Credits:
“Three to One” (2011)
Choreography: Michelle Dorrance
Music: Aphex Twin, Thom Yorke

“Jungle Blues” (2012)
Choreography: Michelle Dorrance
Music: Branford Marsalis

“Myelination” (2015)
Choreography: Michelle Dorrance
Original Music*: Donovan Dorrance, Gregory Richardson
*performed live in concert
Myelination was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

DORRANCE DANCE aims to honor tap dance’s unique history in a new context by upholding the traditional form while pushing its rhythmic, technical, and conceptual boundaries. The company is passionately committed to expanding the audience of tap dance, America’s long-standing indigenous jazz vernacular.

Founded in 2011 by Artistic Director and 2015 MacArthur Fellow, Michelle Dorrance, the company’s inaugural performance garnered a Bessie Award for “blasting open our notions of tap.” In the following years, the company has received countless accolades, rave reviews, and performed for packed houses at venues including Jacob’s Pillow, The Joyce Theater, The Kennedy Center, New York City Center, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Vail International Dance Festival, National Arts Centre of Canada, Spoleto Festival USA, Fira Tarega (Spain), Staatstheater Darmstadt (Germany), and more.
