“An odd, seemingly impossible marriage of tap and modern dance that came off edgy, seductive and smart.” The Chicago Tribune

“The main emotion that SOUNDspace produced was excitement: excitement about sounds, and about the development of this talented choreographer.” The New York Times

A Bessie Award-winning troupe known for “blasting open our notions of tap,” Dorrance Dance pushes tap dance’s tradition – rhythmically, aesthetically and conceptually. Street, club and experimental dance forms awaken to the furious rhythms of America’s long-standing jazz vernacular in a new, dynamically compelling context. Founder Michelle Dorrance, a MacArthur Fellow, is considered “one of the most imaginative tap choreographers working today” (The New Yorker). This Santa Barbara favorite from the 2014-2015 Dance series returns to perform a new program: SOUNDspace, an exciting work that explores movement as music; and ETM (“electronic tap music”), a nod toward electronic dance music with acoustic and digitally produced sounds.
