“One of the most imaginative tap choreographers working today.” Brian Seibert, The New Yorker
MacArthur Fellow and visionary tap dancer/choreographer Michelle Dorrance has taken the contemporary dance world by storm, tapping spectacularly onto the scene and breathing dramatic new life into the traditional American dance form. With an unstoppable creative energy, the new superstar uses her deep understanding of tap to reimagine its boundless artistic possibilities.
ETM: Double Down, a collaboration with Bessie Award winner Nicholas Van Young, is a fusion of acoustic and electronic sound – the high octane performers dancing across platforms and boards, tapping out elaborately choreographed phrases while simultaneously playing a musical composition. This is effervescent, electrifying tap for the 21st Century.
