Student Company

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. 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. 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 include rehearsals. Performance opportunities will take place throughout the year.


Auditions for the 2021/2022 academic year will be held on Wednesday, September 8; 4:30-5:30pm for Student Company II, and 5:30-6:30pm for Student Company I. The registration period is now closed. Student Company will be 100% in-person this year; we cannot accept virtual audition submissions.

AUDITION FORMAT: Dancers will be led through a brief warm-up followed by students learning and demonstrating a short phrase of Mark Morris repertory. Dancers should wear tights or leggings and a leotard or tight fitting top that covers their torso. Dancers will be barefoot.

FEES: Tuition for Student Company Modern technique class and one additional technique class of dancer’s choice in The School at the Mark Morris Dance Center PLUS a one-time flat fee of $375 to support the cost of rehearsal, master classes, guest artists, performances, and costumes.
