Segerstrom Hall - Costa Mesa, CA

ETM: Double Down takes the uniquely American dance form of tap to a new level, with a musical score triggered by the company of eight dancers’ fabulous footwork. Tap has always been a way of talking to the stage, but with Van Young’s electronic tap boards, the stage is now able to talk back, as every step, swipe, and scrape sets off an element of sound, turning the entire stage into a musical instrument.

Choreography: Michelle Dorrance and Nicholas Van Young, with Ephrat Asherie, and solo improvisation by the dancers

Original Music by: Gregory Richardson, Nicholas Van Young, Donovan Dorrance, Aaron Marcellus, Warren Craft, with Michelle Dorrance
