Overview

“WITH EACH PERFORMANCE OF DORRANCE DANCE, TAP EXPANDS”

– The New York Times

Experience the brilliant tap artistry of visionary Michelle Dorrance like you’ve never before witnessed it. New work includes two world premieres as well as two New York and one company premiere. Let Dorrance (MacArthur Fellow and Doris Duke Artist) and her award-winning company Dorrance Dance electrify you in this program of innovative premieres and rarely seen repertory. Hailed for their ingenuity in both expanding the boundaries of tap dance and honoring its roots, the Company's complex footwork and elegant bodies produce intricate layers of sound, right in time with the music. Highlights of this City Center engagement include Harlequin and Pantalone, choreographed by hoofer, clown, and stage and screen star Bill Irwin who will also perform alongside Dorrance; Jump Monk, by tap dance legend Brenda Bufalino; and a re-imagining of SOUNDspace, the Company’s 2013 site-specific exploration of New York City’s St. Mark’s Church. Special guest Kate Davis will accompany several pieces with live music. Whether you’ve loved the Company in past Fall for Dance Festivals or are experiencing Dorrance’s wild choreographic imagination for the first time, this slate of rotating repertory will blast open your notions of what tap dance can be.

In her own words, Michelle Dorrance shares more about this program and City Center’s game-changing impact on her work.

New York City Center’s 75th Anniversary spring dance season offers something for everyone, from the dance connoisseur to the curious newcomer. Read more
