"One of the most imaginative tap choreographers working today."
The New Yorker

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 perform selections from three of their acclaimed, percussive works: SOUNDspace, an a cappella segement from ETM: The Initial Approach, and The Blues Project with live music performed by the dancers. Each work is a ringing testament to tap dance as both movement as music.
