Student Company

The Student Company of The School at the Mark Morris Dance Center exemplifies the progressive, comprehensive, and musically-driven approach of Mark Morris’s work. The Student Company focuses on modern dance training, prioritizing the experience of performing works of influential choreographers in the field, while utilizing understandings of other dance techniques to support diverse approaches to performance quality. The year culminates in public performances at the Mark Morris Dance Center.

 

Student Company I & II dancers are advanced students (ages 10-18) and selected by audition each Fall. Auditionees must be present at the audition, and there are no audition makeups. We will not consider video auditions. 

 

Dancers are required to participate in two weekly classes (modern and one other dance technique offered by The School at the Mark Morris Dance Center) September to June. Weekly Student Company modern classes will take place adjacent to weekly rehearsals. Performance opportunities will take place throughout the year. Students choosing to commit to the Student Company are not permitted to miss more than three classes/rehearsals per semester.


Auditions for the 2022/2023 academic year will be held on Thursday, September 8; 4:30-5:30 pm for Student Company II, and 5:30-6:30 pm for Student Company I.
