Dorrance Dance: Myelination

 

“Michelle Dorrance’s 10-dancer company reflected plenty of racial, physical, and stylistic diversity yet could deliver complex unison footwork with a precision matching any cookie-cutter tap corps of the past.” (Los Angeles Times)

Founded in 2011 by MacArthur “Genius” Award recipient Michelle Dorrance, Dorrance Dance honors 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. Dorrance grew up performing with the North Carolina Youth Tap Ensemble and has since appeared with STOMP, Savion Glover, Manhattan Tap, and a host of others. This return engagement by her company features three Dorrance works: the exhilarating ensemble piece Myelination, Jungle Blues (with a score by Branford Marsalis), and Three to One (with a score by Aphex Twin and Thom Yorke). Dorrance is “a brilliant conductor [who] pushes the boundaries of tap while exposing its true nature: that it is music.” (New York Times)
