The Mark Morris Dance Accompaniment Training Program highlights the importance of music in the dance studio and elevates dance accompaniment as a viable profession. This program aims to create a set of standards for dance accompaniment and ensure a baseline of competency.
Over the 5-day workshop, the Mark Morris Dance Accompaniment Training Program trains a cohort of 10-15 advanced to professional musicians—pianists, percussionists, and other instrumentalists—to accompany a variety of technique classes, children’s dance, and an introduction to adaptive dance programs like Dance for PD classes.
