The School at the Mark Morris Dance Center is a community-based dance and music program in a fully inclusive and nurturing environment, located in the heart of the Brooklyn Cultural District. The School’s diverse and professional faculty provides progressive, non-competitive, and inclusive instruction with classes accompanied by live music. We are intentionally a non-recital school with a student-centered, culturally responsive instructional approach based in our core values of Artistic Excellence, Creativity, Community, and Access.

The School is split into two divisions: Children and Teen Programs (Ages 6-18 years) and Early Childhood Programs (Ages 18 mos.-6 years). Registration for Early Childhood Summer Session opens on May 24. General registration for Children and Teen Semester 1 opens on August 30. Join our email list to receive email alerts about registration. Visitors and guardians will be permitted inside the Dance Center on a limited basis.
