The Baker-Baum Concert Hall
Bringing innovation to the tap tradition and paving the way for a new generation, Michelle Dorrance, founder and artistic director of Dorrance Dance, is one of the most acclaimed tap dancers and “one of the most imaginative tap choreographers working today” (The New Yorker). SOUNDspace, originally a site-specific work that explored the unique acoustics of New York City’s St. Mark’s Church, grows and adapts in this reinvention for The Baker-Baum Concert Hall. With the myriad sounds and textures of the feet, Ms. Dorrance’s work explores what is most beautiful and exceptional about tap dancing—movement as music.
“…entirely glorious.” – The New York Times
