Myelination & Basses Loaded
Shows and tickets
Dorrance Dance led by Michelle Dorrance is an award-winning tap group from New York, whose works combines live music and virtuosic tap!
The piece Myelination is a sparkling ensemble enriched by improvisational solos, where the personality of each performer is allowed to shine. The music composed for the piece forms a rich fabric with the tap dance, which challenges the performers to take risks and reach new technical and musical peaks.
The evening will also feature Basses Loaded, performed by four bassists and four dancers, which exudes the vastness of expertise, precision of footwork and musical diversity that this group is known for.
