Dorrance Dance “blast[s] open our notions of tap” — expanding not only the possibilities of the genre but also its audience. The critically acclaimed SOUNDspace originally sought to explore the unique acoustics of New York City's St. Mark's Church through the myriad sounds and textures of the feet. To protect the wood floors of the church, dancers used leather soles and wood taps in exchange for aluminum taps, resulting in a deeper exploration of the sounds of early tap dancing. Experience SOUNDspace and discover what is most beautiful and exceptional about tap dancing – movement as music.
Ms. Dorrance makes full use of tone, timbre, volume, tempo and, of course, rhythm, constructing patterns that lock together thrillingly…The main emotion that “SOUNDspace” produced was excitement: excitement about sounds, and about the development of this talented choreographer, the most promising one in tap right now.
