Dorrance Dance @ Civic Center
Oct 22 @ 7:30 pm

DORRANCE DANCE is an award-winning tap dance company based out of New York City. The company’s work aims to honor tap dance’s uniquely beautiful history in a new, dynamic, and compelling context; not by stripping the form of its tradition, but by pushing it – rhythmically, technically, and conceptually. The company’s inaugural performance garnered a Bessie Award for “blasting open our notions of tap” and the company continues its passionate commitment to expanding the audience of tap dance, America’s original art form.

Founded in 2011 by artistic director and 2015 MacArthur Fellow, Michelle Dorrance, the company has received countless accolades, rave reviews and performed for packed houses at venues including The Joyce Theater (New York, NY), Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival (Becket, MA), New York City Center (New York, NY), Carolina Performing Arts (Chapel Hill, NC), Vail International Dance Festival (Vail, CO), The Kennedy Center (Washington, DC), Lincoln Center Out of Doors (New York, NY), among many others.

Please note: only children age 5 and over with tickets will be allowed into the theater for this production.
