Phenomenal Women is a new CitySpace series spotlighting women leaders in variety of fields – most of which have been historically dominated by men. We invite women who have risen to the top of their professions to share their stories – from scientists researching how our brains work and athletes coaching major league sports to journalists transforming newsrooms, to artists reclaiming women’s voices.  

Dancer and choreographer Michelle Dorrance talks with Radio Boston host Tiziana Dearing about one of America’s oldest art forms: tap dance. Dorrance is the founder and artistic director of Dorrance Dance and a MacArthur Fellow. Learn how she has reimagined the artistic possibilities of tap dance while honoring its history and foundation in African American culture and highlighting its influences on modern dance forms.
