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’ work. The Student Company focuses on ballet and modern training while prioritizing the experience of performing works of influential choreographers in the field.

Student Company I & II dancers are advanced students (ages 10-18) and selected by audition each Fall. Dancers are required to participate in two weekly classes (ballet and modern) and one weekly rehearsal from September to June. The year culminates in public performances at the Mark Morris Dance Center.
