BENNINGTON– Michelle Dorrance, award-winning and electrifying tap dancer, teacher, and choreographer, will perform with members of her troupe and teach a Tap Master class at Southern Vermont College on Thursday, November 21. Both the class and the program are free and open to the public. Please note that space is limited.

Dorrance has been tap dancing since the age of 4 and performing on stage since she was 8.
