The work of Dorrance Dance has garnered critical acclaim, including winning a Bessie Award for “blasting open our notions of tap”. In 2015, Michelle Dorrance was named a MacArthur Fellow and was a recipient of the MacArthur Genius Award. Performing in CPT’s intimate Gordon Square Theatre, the performances will feature fun-filled tap like you’ve never seen it before!
