Our Core Values

Our core values include celebrating our diverse community, pursuing excellence in all that we do, advancing access, exposure and opportunity to dance and music, and cultivating creativity.

COMMUNITY
(CELEBRATE COMMUNITY)

We build meaningful and sustainable relationships by engaging our community through dynamic programming on the stage, at our Dance Center and throughout the world. We listen, respond, and collaborate as active members of our diverse community and foster a sense of belonging. We welcome all.

EXCELLENCE
(PURSUE EXCELLENCE)

We strive to excel in all areas of our work, offering outstanding experiences through inspiring programming and continuous learning. We recognize that excellence is dynamic. Enriched by our successes as well as our mistakes, we work toward our goals with dedication, passion, and a spirit of fun.

CREATIVITY
(CULTIVATE CREATIVITY)

Inspired by Mark Morris’ vision, we create an environment in which imagination and inventiveness can grow and flourish in the work that we do, partnerships we build, and the art we present. By welcoming individuals for who they are, we drive innovation, encourage risk-taking, and find solutions collaboratively.

ACCESS
(ADVANCE ACCESS)

Dedicated to equity and diversity, we strive to remove barriers that prevent historically excluded populations from working, learning or dancing with us. We create equitable and inclusive music and dance experiences for all.
