About Us

About Our Dance Group

The internationally renowned Mark Morris Dance Group (MMDG) has received ‘highest praise for their technical aplomb, their musicality, and their sheer human authenticity.’ (Bloomberg News). Founded in 1980, the Dance Group performs the repertory of choreographer Mark Morris, praised as the ‘the most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical’ (The New York Times), whose work is acclaimed for its ingenuity, musicality, wit, and humanity. Live music and community engagement are vital components of the Dance Group. It has toured with its own musicians, the MMDG Music Ensemble, since 1996, and regularly collaborates with orchestras and opera companies around the world. In addition to 17 full-time dancers, the organization currently employs 34 full-time staff and 75 part-time staff, teaching artists, and musicians.
