As we look at ways we can support the black community and lift black voices, we compiled a list of resources that includes black-led dance and arts organizations and groups doing important advocacy work to undo racism. Visit our Resource page to learn more.

L’Allegro Project

For: Middle and high school students
Timeframe: 11 sessions (includes performance/Master Class at the Dance Center)

Our L’Allegro Project introduces students to the performing and visual arts through a Mark Morris masterwork – L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato features the music of George Frideric Handel, poetry of John Milton, and paintings of William Blake. Students explore the interplay of these art forms and gain a basic understanding of dance vocabulary through Morris’ choreography, eventually having the opportunity to create choreography of their own. The residency culminates with a visit to the Mark Morris Dance Center where students get to watch the Mark Morris Dance Group and perform excerpts from the work with them, followed by a Q&A session.

All classes are accompanied by live music.
