Dance Inn Productions proudly presents Dorrance Dance, under the direction of Michelle Dorrance, one of the world’s most innovative and quirky tap choreographers, who recently received the Bessie Award…

For blasting open our notions of tap through the deliciously choral rhythms of swooshing, stamping socks in a transformative Jimmy Slyde tribute, and for the epiphany of showing us the hardworking bare feet inside tap technique, A 2011 New York Dance and Performance Award for Outstanding Production goes to Michelle Dorrance for Remembering Jimmy and Three to One at Danspace Project.

Michelle Dorrance is one of the most sought after tap dancers of her generation. Michelle teaches, choreographs and performs throughout the US and abroad, is on faculty at Broadway Dance Center and performs with the New York City cast of the Off-Broadway sensation, STOMP.

“Remembering Jimmy pays homage to a tap master in both adoring and unaffected terms. It’s hypnotic; the stage is alive with slippery footsteps as dancers — dressed in white and wearing socks — slide from side to side like a flock of ghostly speed skaters. Smack in the center is Ms. Dorrance, the light within: her sunny charisma and lanky body work in mesmerizing combination as she glides across the floor or hits it with fury. (Her coordination and speed are
incredible.)” – The New York Times
