Award-winning company Dorrance Dance brings electronic tap music Omaha! Based in New York City, the troupe’s work aims to honor tap dance’s uniquely beautiful history in a new, dynamic and compelling context. In ETM: Double Down, three musicians, a break-dancer and eight ace tap dancers deliver an absorbing performance that twitches with invention on an electronic dance floor. 

Choreographer Michelle Dorrance’s let-it-all-hang-out style and locomotive foot speed have a contemporary physicality like nothing known before in tap and the sound from the electronic tap floor, created by collaborator Nicholas Young, transforms the whole stage into one instrument.
