Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival 2017 | Tap Students
I’m excited to share more tap images from Jacob’s Pillow – this time switching focus from the performing artists onstage to the students at The School at Jacob’s Pillow’s tap program. The tap program was led by Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards and Michelle Dorrance. There were many awesome guest artists teaching, including Dianne Walker, Derick K. Grant, and Sam Weber.
There was an impromptu dance battle a few years ago that was a big hit at the Pillow. This year, they planned an invitation-only battle on Sunday night after the shows. Michelle Dorrance hosted, and they even had a live DJ for the event. The Pillow sold tickets so people could come to watch, which was a great idea. First round, everyone got 30 seconds and the four judges cut the field in half and paired people up. Then they did knockout rounds. It was intense, inspiring, and mostly FUN! People were really into it.
