WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Dorrance Dance aims to honor tap dance's unique history in a new context by upholding the traditional form while pushing its rhythmic, technical, and conceptual boundaries. The company is passionately committed to expanding the audience of tap dance, America's long-standing indigenous jazz vernacular. By incorporating other forms that have shaped the foundation of American culture — such as street, club, and experimental dance — Dorrance Dance highlights the traditional elements of tap dance and its musical rhythms in a contemporary light.
