Dorrance, 35, grew up in a house where movement and dance and extraordinary achievement were omnipresent kids dance shoes. Her mother M’Liss Gary Dorrance was a long-time ballet dancer who founded and directed the Ballet School of Chapel Hill. Her father, Anson Dorrance, led the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team to the World Cup in 1991 (and currently coaches the University of North Carolina’s women’s soccer team). Drawn to tap at an early age, Dorrance came under the wing of Gene Medler, a tap teacher with connections to the tradition’s pantheon of stars..
Through Medler, Dorrance had many opportunities to learn directly from tap innovators and legends whose careers stretched back to the 1920s and 30s, including Maceo Anderson, Cholly Atkins, Peg Leg Bates, Bunny Briggs, the Nicholas Brothers, and later masters like Gregory Hines and Savion Glover. Dorrance absorbed the tradition directly from the source, not just the moves but the deeper culture, “why we dance the way we dance,” she says. “Gene Medler did not have to go outside of Chapel Hill, but he sought out the innovators. He went to these early tap festivals and really built the sense of a tap family in our local community kids dance shoes. We were so lucky and incredibly blessed to have these relationships.”..
