Michelle Dorrance awarded MacArthur Foundation Fellowship

We’re so excited for Tap faculty member Michelle Dorrance on being announced as one of the 2015 MacArthur Fellows.

The MacArthur Fellowship is a $625,000, no-strings-attached grant for individuals who have shown exceptional creativity in their work and the promise to do more.

Michelle Dorrance is a tap dancer and choreographer breathing new life into a uniquely American art form in works that combine the musicality of tap with the choreographic intricacies of contemporary dance. Dorrance uses her deep understanding of the technique and history of tap dancing to deconstruct and reimagine its artistic possibilities.
