She was the MacArthur “Genius” Award recipient and grew up performing with the North Carolina Youth Tap Ensemble. She later appeared with STOMP, Manhattan Tap and more.

“Michelle Dorrance’s 10-dancer company reflected plenty of racial, physical, and stylistic diversity yet could deliver complex unison footwork with a precision matching any cookie-cutter tap corps of the past.” –Los Angeles Times
