Dorrance Dance – A Free William H. Gile Concert Series Performance
January 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 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. Founder and artistic director Michelle Dorrance is a MacArthur “Genius Grant” winning American tap dancer, performer, choreographer, teacher and director.
Before forming her company, Dorrance danced with the North Carolina Youth Tap Ensemble and other tap groups, and she toured with “Stomp,” the percussive-dance and street-theater production whose performers make music from brooms, matchboxes, toilet plungers and other humble objects. That show’s openness to possibilities has stayed with her, along with the “yes, and” philosophy of improvisation — the practice of accepting whatever your partner offers, and building on it.
