Dorrance Dance

Dance St. Louis continues its 57th season with “the most acclaimed tap dancer of recent years” (The New York Times) in a mesmerizing evening of tap and live music.


MacArthur “Genius Grant” winner, choreographer and tap dancer Michelle Dorrance brings her fleet of magnificent dancers and musicians for a riveting evening at the Touhill.


The award-winning New York City-based tap dance company has received countless accolades and rave reviews, drawing packed venues from the Joyce Theater and New York City Center to Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival and the Kennedy Center, among others.


Founded in 2011 and made up of truly unique artists—dancers and musicians rooted in improvisation with an investment in choreographic exploration and musical composition—Dorrance Dance engages with audiences across the globe on a musical and emotional level, sharing the complex history and powerful legacy of this American art form.


Dorrance Dance explores what is most thrilling, brilliant, and beautiful about tap dancing—that it is, at once, movement and music.


For the Dance St. Louis presentation on March 25, Dorrance Dance and its musicians perform two works — both featuring tap dance and live music.


SOUNDspace was originally a site-specific work that explored the unique acoustics of New York City’s St. Mark’s Church through the myriad sounds and textures of the feet.


45th & 8th
45th & 8th makes its debut featuring the original compositions of “breathtaking vocalist” Aaron Marcellus (The New York Times)
