Michelle Dorrance: tapping is music

Tap dance may not be the most popular form of dance currently, but you may have thought otherwise if you were in Oswego this week. MacArthur Genius Grant winner Michelle Dorrance's performance of “SOUNDspace” at SUNY Oswego sold out, as did the master class she taught to local young tap dancers at Miss Kelly’s Dance Company. Dorrance is known for her innovation and experimentation. WRVO's Mark Lavonier spoke with Dorrance while she was in Oswego about how she views tap dancing.
