This summer, join us for a series of free, livestreamed Listening Parties with Mark Morris and MMDG Music Director Colin Fowler as they delve into music of different genres and eras. This event will be centered around Music from the Movies and will include a live, online question-and-answer session with Morris and Fowler.

Alfred Hitchcock said, “If it’s a good movie, the sound could go off and the audience would still have a pretty clear idea of what was going on.” That’s the opposite of what Balanchine said about ballet. Imagine the shower scene from Psycho without the chilling score of Bernard Herrmann. We will explore some of the greatest contributions to this genre as masterworks in their own right.


As a performance, education, and cultural resource for our global community, changes in programming, including postponed performances and cancellations, have had a significant financial impact on our organization. Amidst these challenges, we are committed to bringing you meaningful programs and keeping our community strong.

But we need your help. If you can, please consider donating to our Dance On! Recovery Fund. If you’ve already made a gift—thank you!
