Michelle Dorrance, founder and artistic director of Dorrance Dance, is one of the most sought after tap dancers of her generation and "one of the most imaginative tap choreographers working todayā€¯ (The New Yorker). A 2012 Princess Grace Award Winner, 2012 Field Dance Fund Recipient, and 2011 Bessie Award Winner, Dorrance performs, teaches and choreographs throughout the world. She has toured with the off-Broadway hit show STOMP, performed at the 2002 Winter Olympics and 2001 Cannes Film Festival, danced in festivals around the world, and shared the stage with the likes of Dianne Walker, Savion Glover, Harold Cromer, Jason Samuels Smith and many others. Dorrance Dance's mission aims to help audiences view tap dance, a beautiful, old jazz form, in a new and dynamically compelling context, not by stripping the form of its tradition, but by pushing it: rhythmically, aesthetically and conceptually.
