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

Choreography: Michelle Dorrance
Music: Branford Marsalis

“Myelination” (2015)

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.

Founded in 2011 by MacArthur “Genius” Award recipient and artistic director Michelle Dorrance, DORRANCE DANCE aims to honor tap dance’s uniquely beautiful history in a new and dynamically compelling context, not by stripping the form of its tradition, but by pushing it rhythmically, aesthetically and conceptually. Street, club and experimental dance forms – all of which are American dreams – awake to the sound of furious rhythms and find their boundaries missing. Tap dance, America’s longest-standing indigenous jazz vernacular, is here to receive its due. Mentored by Gene Medler, Michelle Dorrance grew up performing with the North Carolina Youth Tap Ensemble and has since appeared with STOMP, Savion Glover’s ti dii, Manhattan Tap, Barbara Duffy & Co, JazzTap Ensemble, Rumba Tap, Ayodele Casel’s Diary of a Tap Dancer, Mable Lee’s Dancing Ladies, Harold Cromer’s original Opus One, Derick Grant’s Imagine Tap and Jason Samuels Smith’s Charlie’s Angels/Chasing the Bird. Her choreography has been featured around the world. In 2015, Dorrance Dance with Toshi Reagon and BIGLovely won a Bessie Award for their show The Blues Project. The company’s inaugural performance garnered a 2011 Bessie Award for “blasting open our notions of tap.”


McArthur Genius Award winning artist and Artistic Director, Michelle Dorrance, and select Dorrance Dance company members will be teaching master classes at Puget Sound area studios.
