Tap dancing gained a MacArthur “genius” award when one was bestowed on Michelle Dorrance. The exuberant Dorrance has become the “it” girl of today’s tap dance and her SOUNDspace originally developed as a site-specific tap performance in New York City’s St. Mark’s Church for her Dorrance Dance arrives in L.A. for a single show. If the sonic elements of a church or theater are geared to maximizing sound, why not tap dancers making music with their feet? The event is presented by USC’s Visions and Voices, which has made a mark bringing innovative performance like Dorrance to town.
USC Bovard Auditorium, 3551 Trousdale Parkway., University Park; Wed., March 4, 7:30 p.m.; free with RSVP. visionsandvoices.usc.edu.
