“Dorrance … is arguably the most brilliant, innovative tapper of her generation.” ~The Boston Globe

Hailed as “entirely glorious” by The New York Times, Dorrance presents tap dance like you’ve never seen. In Artistic Director Michelle Dorrance’s capable hands, the company pushes the boundaries of this uniquely American art form.

For more than 80 years, the Artist Series has brought the globe's finest jazz, classical, world music and dance performers to Boulder. Many of these performances sell out; order your tickets today to guarantee the best seats.
