Michelle Dorrance, Artistic Director
“An odd, seemingly impossible marriage of tap and modern dance that came off edgy, seductive and smart.” The Chicago Tribune
“The main emotion that SOUNDspace produced was excitement: excitement about sounds, and about the development of this talented choreographer.” The New York Times
A Bessie Award-winning troupe known for “blasting open our notions of tap,” Dorrance Dance pushes tap dance’s tradition – rhythmically, aesthetically and conceptually. Street, club and experimental dance forms awaken to the furious rhythms of America’s long-standing jazz vernacular in a new, dynamically compelling context. Founder Michelle Dorrance, a MacArthur Fellow, is considered “one of the most imaginative tap choreographers working today” (The New Yorker). This Santa Barbara favorite from the 2014-2015 Dance series returns to perform a new program: SOUNDspace, an exciting work that explores movement as music; and ETM (“electronic tap music”), a nod toward electronic dance music with acoustic and digitally produced sounds.
