A continuation of our year-round community engagement activities, Open House provides a free sampling of a wide array of programming, including dance and fitness classes for all ages and levels and performances of Mark Morris’ repertory by the Mark Morris Dance Group and the student companies of The School at the Mark Morris Dance Center.   

In addition to these free classes and performances, Open House gives community members a chance to meet and mingle with faculty and staff, register for children and teen classes at The School, purchase discounted dancewear, and enjoy free food and refreshments provided by local vendors.  Open House is an opportunity for everyone in the community to connect, dance, and learn.

“There’s plenty to do at Open House,” says Artistic Director Mark Morris, “Do it all. Watch my company perform. Take a tour of the building. Meet new people. Have a good time. Consider this your dance home. Enjoy it.”
