N.C. Youth Tap Ensemble

Carolina Theatre– After a touring season including dates at the Joyce Theater in New York and Washington’s Kennedy Center, our favorite local (and internationally renowned) troupe of tap artist teenagers return for a little home turf hoofing tonight. The incandescent Michelle Dorrance–another local hero–adds to the savor, with live jazz and music by the G.O.A.T. String Quartet. If you’ve never seen their work, here’s a taste ahead of time: video from their latest gigs can be seen at www.ncyte.org under the Media Gallery link. If you didn’t catch Saturday night’s 7 p.m. show, a family show runs today at 2. Tickets are $10-15; call 560-3030. –Byron Woods
