After their triumphant Northrop debut in 2015 with The Blues Project, Michelle Dorrance and her remarkable company of dancers return to dispel all of our pre-conceived notions about tap dance and fill the Northrop stage with rhythm and joy! Springing from Dorrance’s prodigious imagination and embodied by an ensemble of dancers as diverse and multi-faceted as tap dance itself, Myelination provides a fitting climax to this year’s Twin Cities Tap Festival. Registration deadline is September 18. Pre-party hosted by Bon Sommerville at Northrup. Sign up for the Tap Talk with Jan Chamberlin on September 11. There are a limited number of parking passes available which will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis for $10.
