Michelle Dorrance Creates New Work for BAM!
“She’s known both as a dancer and as a choreographer, as someone who can pull from the past while she pushes the future, and she’s the only tap choreographer the Princess Grace Foundation has ever recognized with a Choreography Fellowship.
Dorrance has just created a new work called Push Past Break for BAM!, the Chicago Human Rhythm Project’s exceptional resident ensemble. BAM! will perform the work on Thursday, April 4 for the Auditorium Theatre’s MUSIC + MOVEMENT FESTIVAL with a live performance by the Greg Spero Trio and jazz vocalist Teresa Thomas, before they go on to present it on tour in Michigan, at the Spring to Dance Festival in St. Louis, and again this summer at JUBA! Masters of Tap and Percussive Dance.” -Johnny Nevin for the Huffington Post
