Dorrance Dance captured the hearts of Festival audiences with their 2016 Vail Dance Festival premiere appearance. Dorrance 2.0 finds this thrilling modern tap company in Beaver Creek’s intimate Vilar Performing Arts Center in a special performance led by their founder and Vail’s 2017 Artist-In-Residence, Michelle Dorrance, described by The New York Times as “…the most exciting and original choreographer in tap today.”
The evening’s program, ETM: Double Down, is a collaborative creation between Ms. Dorrance and company member Nicholas Van Young that incorporates the entire company dancing on electronic tap boards (which compare to electronic drum triggers.) “The entire stage is an instrument” is how Mr. Van Young describes the effect. The work explores acoustic and digitally-produced sounds.
Parking for the VPAC: Please note that free parking in Beaver Creek is extremely limited due to numerous activities taking place simultaneously in the resort. Please allow enough time to park at the base of the resort and take the shuttle to the covered bridge shuttle stop, if necessary. $20 valet parking IS AVAILABLE on “the island” directly in front of the venue on Avondale Lane. Simply let the Beaver Creek welcome gate know your intent to valet, and they will direct you.
