The mission of the Contemporary American Dance Museum is to
generate, collect, preserve, and interpret fine art, photography,
video/film, and manuscript collections, which document new American
contemporary modern dances as they are being created. We educate the
public by presenting exhibitions of our collections in conjunction with
live performances of the new dances they document. Thus, we support
contemporary modern dance in America, and widen its funding base by
blending its audience with the audiences for the visual arts.
