"Michelle Dorrance may be a dancer, but musicianship is the bedrock of her talent. Dorrance’s rhythm tap (as opposed to theatrical tap dance) is as much a musical form as a physical one…" – The Guardian
“…a sonic distillation of a blistering American past and its perilous present, with a transcendent strength of spirit woven through.”
— The Washington Post
