Michelle Dorrance is one of the brightest stars in contemporary tap dance. A featured choreographer at Jacob’s Pillow for the past three summers, she will re-stage one of her most original and exciting works— SOUNDspace— in SUNY Oswego’s Hewitt Union Ballroom. She’s paid her dues with popular touring shows like STOMP, and now leads her own gifted company. An exciting treat for the eyes and ears!
“Inventive, imaginative take on tap!” —Boston Globe
“Michelle Dorrance is not only a dynamo in tap shoes but a compelling, imaginative choreographer as well. She and her company… performed… works that stretch the boundaries of tap.”
-Karen Campbell, The Boston Globe
“Ms. Dorrance makes full use of tone, timbre, volume, tempo and, of course, rhythm, constructing patterns that lock together thrillingly…The main emotion that “SOUNDspace” produced was excitement: excitement about sounds, and about the development of this talented choreographer, the most promising one in tap right now.”
-Brian Seibert, The New York Times
