Tap dancer/choreographer’s roof-raising tribute to the indigenous American arts of tap and the blues. With live music.
"Not only a dynamo in tap shoes but a compelling, imaginative choreographer." Boston Globe
MacArthur “genius” tap dancer/choreographer Michelle Dorrance leads her company in a roof-raising tribute to the indigenous American arts of tap and the blues. Blending street, club and experimental dance, the dancers weave, glide and leap in solo or group formations as they caress the ear
with tart, cascading rhythms over Toshi Reagon’s (“a treasure waiting to be found”—Pop Matters) husky-sweet vocals and funky original tunes, performed live onstage.
