PREVIEW: Dorrance Dance taps to the Power Center

Join Dorrance Dance for the second performance of their two day run in Ann Arbor. Former STOMP member, Michelle Dorrance and her dancers are set to rattle the Power Center’s rafters with the rhythm of their shoes.

Traveling with their own floor may seem a little extreme, but you won’t be sorry they did! Michelle Dorrance is the winner of the 2015 MacArthur “Genius” Grant and her stunning choreography continues to gain praise. Friday night’s performance features segments from both ETM: Double Down, which uses platforms with sensors linked to computers, and SOUNDscape.

I was never very good at tap, despite my mother’s continued attempts to change this by enrolling me in classes. I was always jealous of the girls who could just tap their toes and create music. I’m sure I will be both very jealous and wondrous watching what Michelle Dorrance has in store tomorrow!

The performance starts at 8pm on Friday, October 21st at the Power Center and is approximately 2 hours with an intermission. Tickets at this point are very limited! Check out this video for a sneak peek.
