What ModArts Dance Collective Is

ModArts Dance Collective (MADC), a professional modern dance company, is comprised of dedicated, passionate, and gifted artists on a quest for technical growth and artistic nourishment. The company employs a synthesis of ballet and modern blended with Afro centric undertones to articulate the human condition and spirit through the unbounded art form of dance. ModArts Dance Collective prides itself on works of dance that possess both high artistic merit, as well as works bearing a readiness to connect and inspire a multitude of people from various walks of life. ModArts Dance Collective artistically represents an adoration and joy for movement that transcends race, gender, and socio-economic backgrounds. ModArts Dance Collective provides a nurturing environment where artists can embody, and audiences can experience, the desire, athleticism, and vitality of dance.

The Mission of ModArts Dance Collective

ModArts Dance Collective's mission is twofold: to celebrate and provide a platform for minority female artists to share their artistic journeys through classes, residencies, workshops, and performances to expose and educate the Harlem community, as well as underexposed communities throughout the United States,
and to collaborate with other artists to build an arts community that will inspire, challenge, and support each other.
MADC is passionate about being a vehicle for minority female artists to teach classes, workshops, and residencies and present their work in a nurturing environment where they can continue to hone and develop their artistic voices and create a community of likeminded artists, audience members, and patrons who support and understand their vision. 
'Collective,' refers to the members of a cooperative enterprise. Specifically the collective includes the artists who perform in the studio and on stage, as well as the collaborating musicians, composers, visual artists, and creative writers. MADC provides a safe and open environment where artists of different genres can start a diagolue, and create something that reflects everyone's strengths, embraces their weaknesses, and pushes all involved outside of their creative comfort zones.
