About Us

The Mark Morris Dance Group, formed in 1980, is an 18-member dance company that tours domestically and internationally. Live music and community engagement are vital components of the Dance Group. It has toured with its own musicians, the MMDG Music Ensemble, since 1996. Through the organization’s Access/MMDG programming, it integrates opportunities for dance, music, talks, and education at its Brooklyn home, the Mark Morris Dance Center, as well as on tour around the world. The Dance Center, opened in 2001, also provides rehearsal space for the dance community, diverse dance and fitness offerings for adults, beginner to professional, and a school serving students ages 18 months to 18 years. 


The purpose of the Mark Morris Dance Group is to encourage, assist and realize the creation of dance and dance productions by Mark Morris. It also seeks to foster greater appreciation of theatrical dance as an art form and widen its audience through performances, workshops, educational outreach and other related activities.
