Arts Immersion is a free program, provided by the Mark Morris Dance Group (MMDG), in which students delve deeply into all aspects of dance, production, and arts administration and gain valuable experience in New York City’s performing arts arena. Twenty to twenty-five participants, selected through application, meet twice weekly at the Dance Center with faculty and staff, choreographer Mark Morris, and Dance Group company members and take part in a performance lab culminating in a final show that is student-driven, created, and produced. Participants also have the option to continue their study through myriad opportunities with MMDG and beyond. Arts Immersion is made possible with support from Friends of MMDG and The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation.
Areas of Focus:
EDUCATION: developing curriculum and syllabi, creating lesson plans, articulation, and directing movement
PRODUCTION & MARKETING: Required personnel for production, performance language & etiquette, lighting/sound design, costume/make-up, scheduling, branding, audience building, digital presence
PERFORMANCE & MOVEMENT GENERATION: composition skills, music, improvisation, collaboration, critique/feedback, field trip to see MMDG perform, student choreography and student driven, inspired, and produced performance
